Washington, Oklahoma State’s DB Jabbar Muhammad goes through the NCAA Transfer Portal

Jabbar Muhammad, a defensive back who used to play for Oklahoma State and Washington, has signed up for the NCAA Transfer Portal.

He was one of the first Washington players to do so after hearing that head coach Kalen DeBoer was leaving.

After three years at Oklahoma State, Muhammad moved to Washington to play for the Huskies before the 2023 season. He was extremely good on defense for Washington.

He quickly became the Huskies’ best CB, picking off three passes and protecting 16 in all, which were both career highs. He starred in all 15 games.

In light of the news that DeBoer is moving to become the head coach at Alabama, taking over for Nick Saban, he and the remainder of the Washington team have 30 days to use the move site.

While in high school, Muhammad played football at DeSoto High School in Texas. He was considered a three-star talent there.

An average of the top ten thousand recruits from all four big recruiting media companies called the On3 Industry Ranking says that he was the 1064th best recruit overall in the 2020 cycle.

It was the second year in a row that cornerback Jabbar Muhammad used the transfer link after a single campaign at Washington.

There was a 14-1 record and a trip to the national championship game for the Huskies in 2023, thanks to the defense.

While at Washington, Muhammad earned a spot on the All-Pac-12 Second Team. He played in all 15 games and made 46 stops and three interceptions. Two of those were stops in the national championship game against Michigan, and one was a pass defense.

Muhammad has chosen to move on, even though he did well with the Huskies. After it was announced that coach Kalen DeBoer would take over for Nick Saban at Alabama, Muhammad made his choice to move on.

Muhammad wrote on social media Friday, “I want to thank Coach DeBoer or the whole coaching staff for welcoming me with open arms.”

“This year was unique, and my brothers and I made memories that will endure for a lifetime.” As he moves on to the next part of his journey, I wish Teacher DeBoer the best.”

While he shined at Washington, his defensive half was a big reason why they won in Stillwater. Muhammad played his first three years of college football at Oklahoma State. After the 2022 season, he transferred to Washington.

Muhammad played in all 12 games for OSU in 2021, when they went 12-2. He played the best in OSU’s last two games. In the Big Twelve Championship game against Baylor, he made four stops, which was his best game.

Muhammad got his first start during the Fiesta Bowl toward Notre Dame. He had a great game, making eight stops, which was the most of his career. During his junior year, he kept up his good play and had 48 stops and his first interception.

Even though the end of his season in Washington wasn’t what he had hoped for, the star cornerback is expected to get a lot of interest in moves. Rogers put his name on the record for the first time on November 27, when he transferred from Mississippi State.

Friday night, Washington QB Will Rogers officially put his picture in the window for transfers. This is the second occasion in two months that he appears in the portal.

On November 13, Zach Arnett, his teacher, got fired and Jeff Lebby, the offensive coordinator for Oklahoma, took his place. This is what made Rogers go into the gate for the first time.

He said he would be transferring to Washington on December 15, and it looked like he would take over at quarterback for Michael Penix Jr., who was leaving for Washington.

Rogers attended the national championship event against Michigan at the school, proudly sporting a Washington shirt to support his new team.

Then, on Friday, two days after Nick Saban left, DeBoer became the head coach at Alabama. Now Rogers is back at the gate.
