In its search for another WR in the 2020 class, Texas just had to look in-state.

2020 Fort Bend Austin WR Troy Omeire flipped from Texas A&M to Texas today, joining fellow WR Quentin Johnston in the #cloUT2020 class.

Excerpt from the 5/2/18 Recruiting Notebook:

How he fits at Texas: I was able to pick Omeire out quickly for how smoothly he was running his routes. Considering it was early sophomore film, that’s pretty impressive. Many of the combos and routes he ran are also staples in the Tom Herman offense, which is yet another plus. Omeire probably fits best on the outside and could play either X or Z but with his size and versatility he’d probably be the X guy for his class, using his impressive command of the route tree to get open whenever he faced a 1-on-1 matchup. – Ian Boyd

Coach Says:
Strengths – A tall athlete with room to add plenty of bulk. Gets off the line smoothly and fights the press pretty well. Has a long stride with deceiving straight-line speed. Has a fairly diverse route tree in his repertoire. Closes the cushion on the corner quickly. Smooth route runner despite being only a sophomore. Tracks the ball well and adjusts well to the poor throw. Catches the ball away from his body and secures it quickly. Nice job in the scramble drill. Has subtle set up moves and knows how to get open. Productive after the catch with at least a few finesse moves and able to move through minor contact. Lines up at multiple positions but most likely an X-receiver. This could end up being a tight end depending on how he keeps growing. Scored one TD every 4.7 catches. Areas for Improvement / Concern – Would like to see more lower body explosiveness. Acceleration is modest. Seems to decelerate with change of direction but footage is limited as many changes of direction were designed to squat in a zone.
