Muhammad is an HBCU All-America First-Team and SWAC All-Conference First-Team player as he helped bring the Braves much success for two years in a row. He racked up 87 tackles, three sacks, and two interceptions in  2019.

All three players worked very hard for ASU over the years as they were coached by Fred McNair.
