For a player that no one has seen play in a college game yet, Texas wide receiver Troy Omeire’s circus catches at practice and star potential have Longhorn fans and staff overjoyed already.
The former four-star recruit is a redshirt freshman heading into 2021 after he missed his true freshman year due to a knee injury. However, if he was not injured, he likely would have been a starter. Omeire very well could have found himself as the number one receiver on a roster that lacked a Lil’ Jordan Humphrey or Devin Duvernay style of player that could provide a big-play threat and also a safety blanket.
At 6-foot-3 with a huge catch radius, Omeire is expected to be one of the key contributors on the offensive side of the ball for Texas this season. It is evident he is training to be better and learn all he can after a post surfaced Sunday of him with renowned trainer Justin Allen and Arizona Cardinals superstar DeAndre Hopkins.
Hopkins had an elite college career at Clemson, and has parlayed that to a fantastic NFL career with three first team All-Pros and five Pro Bowl appearances.
Steve Sarkisian has mentioned numerous times that he wants more out of the wide receiver position, and with the help of Allen and Hopkins, Omeire will look to be a key contributor for a Texas team that is hoping to contend for championships right away.
