Will Moose Muhammad Stick Around with Texas A&M Football For Another Year?
A constant refrain for Aggie fans during the Jimbo tenure was how underutilized Moose Muhammad seemed to be. So many Aggie fans felt that the son of the NFL receiver of the same name wasn’t getting enough run in Jimbo’s offense. With the myriad spectacular plays that Moose has made even from his very first year seeing the field (remember that one-handed against New Mexico in 2021?), it’s hard not to empathize with that notion.
However, is he ready to make the jump to the league? His irregular playing time might not commend him as a top candidate to head to the draft, but he’s certainly shown some top-shelf pass-catching skills in the reps he has had. I’m not sure of his relationship with now-former receivers coach Dameyune Craig, but a new guy at that position might be a nice change of pace for Moose and help develop him into an every-down player.
A consistent Moose on the field would be a boon for the Aggies (weird sentence). I don’t see him making the jump to the NFL, even though he is eligible this year. The portal is probably a bigger concern, though I don’t see him necessarily as a prime candidate there, either. If he sticks around, it would be a great retention for the Aggie receiver room.
