Listen. I know when I mentioned "highlight plays," there was one name that jumped to mind for every Texas A&M football fan reading this article—and for good reason.

Muhammad is a walking highlight reel. He hasn't consistently been able to see the field in an Aggie uniform yet, but every time he gets extended time on the gridiron, we see something amazing. Like the one-handed catch against LSU in the final game of 2022. Or maybe this insane catch and hurdle against Abilene Christian. Or even this one from the bowl game.

It gets to a point where you run out of descriptors for the eye-popping plays this guy can make. But it's not just the highlight reel snags that I think will recommend a high rating for Muhammad. He has legitimate, high-end receiver skills in all facets of the game—he's a crisp route runner, can pick up yards after the catch, and can, of course, catch anything that comes his way.

He can improve with better blocking away from the play, but that is probably less likely to play a role in the rating than some of the flashier things we've seen out of Moose. He should be a key piece not only on the virtual Aggie squad, but also the real 2024 team.
