As a Recruit
Malik Muhammad has the family pedigree to make it big on the football field. Muhammad has several relatives that have played or are playing college football. EJ Muhammad (Nevada), A.J. Green (Oklahoma State and Cleveland Browns), Jabar Muhammad (Oklahoma State) and Khairi Muhammad (North Texas) are all cousins. Muhammad transferred back home to the Dallas area and South Oak Cliff High School after playing his sophomore season at IMG Academy in Bradenton, Fla. “I came back because I realized that I could do the same thing that I did at IMG here at South Oak Cliff,” Muhammad told Dave Campbell’s Texas Football. “I want to do it for the hood, for South Oak Cliff.” Muhammad is the third-oldest sibling of nine and one of only three boys. His mother is Nimat Abdullah. Muhammad plans on majoring in international business. He lists his hobbies as music, basketball and movies.
