Jabbar Muhammad's Mentorship

+

When the University of Washington's coaching staff vigorously pursued Jabbar Muhammad from the transfer portal, their intention was not solely to enhance their immediate defense. Junior cornerback Jabbar Muhammad's mission was to impart his knowledge and experience to the younger players, particularly in the cornerback position. Muhammad embraced his role with determination, stating, "My role was to come here and take the corner room under my wing, and give them the knowledge that I have." In the 2023 recruiting class, Washington managed to secure an impressive group of cornerback prospects, including 4-star talents Caleb Presley and Curley Reed, alongside 3-star Leroy Bryant. While Bryant is the sole player from this group who has seen game time thus far, Muhammad has been thoroughly impressed by their progress during practice. Cowboy Channel
