JUNE 30 UPDATE
The Aggies are in the running for one of the best corners in the nation, South Oak Cliff (Dallas, TX) defensive back Malik Muhammad, who released his last three on Thursday.
Alongside the Longhorns, Muhammad listed Texas and Alabama as his other finalists.
Standing 6 feet tall and weighing 170 pounds, Muhammad also has offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Arkansas, Auburn, Baylor, Florida, Florida State, Georgia, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Michigan State, Missouri, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, Oregon, Penn State, South Carolina, TCU, Tennessee, Texas Tech, USC, West Virginia, Wisconsin and many more.
Muhammad played at IMG Academy (Bradenton, FL) his sophomore year, but returned to Texas to play for South Oak Cliff where he won a state championship last season.
During the state title run, Muhammad finished with 68 tackles, six pass breakups, three interceptions, and one defensive touchdown.
However, calling him a mere defensive back would be an injustice to Muhammad. He’s likely to stay in that position through college, but Muhammad is a terrific athlete who can make plays as a receiver, still lining up with South Oak Cliff’s numbers as a junior.
JUNE 29 UPDATE
The Aggies found themselves among the finalists for the best defensive players in the class of 2023, in Ryan (Denton, TX), linebacker Anthony Hill.
The Aggies made the final cut alongside arch-rivals the Texas Longhorns.
