On four-star Michigan CB target Malik Muhammad

Holland: “Muhammad is one of my favorite prospects in the class just from a pure football skill set. I saw him really early on when he was a young kid while I was still on the Texas beat at a 7-on-7 tournament, and he was just a dynamic playmaker as a cornerback. He was out there as a freshman I believe at the Pylon 7-on-7 tournament in Las Vegas and was an absolute playmaker on the backend against some of the best competition nationally and guys much older than him. He’s really developed and come along.” 

“I love what Muhammad brings to the table. Clinkscale’s obviously making him a really high priority. As far as where things stand, Michigan made his top six [Wednesday]. So, just hours after Clinkscale stopped by to see him, he released a top six that included Michigan. I think schools like Texas, Texas A&M, Alabama, Florida are gonna be tough to beat in this recruitment. A lot of it I think has to do with NIL and how much Michigan is willing to invest in NIL.”
