Ibraheem was also suspended from the team last year after an arrest in Oklahoma.

Last season, Ibraheem appeared in one game for the Longhorns. He got some snaps on defense and special teams in Texas’ Week 3 win over the Rice Owls at home last season.

Ibraheem also got on the field for a handful of defensive snaps in Texas’ season-opening win on Sep. 3 at home over the Louisiana-Monroe Warhawks.

The 6-foot-2 and 170-pound Ibraheem is a product of Kimball High School in Dallas, TX. He was a four-star recruit coming out of high school that signed with the Longhorns’ 2021 class.
