Ibrahim was also a second-team All-American and one of the most prolific rushers in the school’s history rushing for almost 5,000 yards in his career as a Gopher which ranks second.
There is no doubt that Ibrahim will be a highly-ranked draft pick in next year’s NFL Draft and most likely will be a No. 1 draft choice. it’s just a question of where he lands in the draft. Whoever lands him, will get one heck of a player.
