Who will it be? Commitment day July 20th.— Malik Muhammad (@Returnof7) July 13, 2022
Muhammad recently announced his three finalists as Alabama, Texas, and Texas A&M, and that finalist group is where the winner of the sweepstakes for the talented defensive back will come from on decision day.
Muhammad officially visited Texas in June and followed that up with a quick unofficial visit to see the Aggies in College Station. Muhammad has an official visit scheduled later this month to see A&M again, but depending on which direction his commitment goes that visit might not happen.
This is another big battle for the Longhorns staff on a priority recruit and the buzz has been favorable for Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff following Muhammad’s official visit with all three predictions in the 247Sports Crystal Ball favoring Texas, three predictions on On3, and eight of nine predictions in the Rivals FutureCast.
With that said, you never want to count out programs like Alabama and Texas A&M, and that goes double for the Aggies, who are looking for a jolt of momentum on the recruiting trail.
