For defensive end Charles Omenihu, the journey to this week started over a year ago. Coming off a productive junior season in which he played in all 13 games and recorded 28 total tackles, the NFL seemed like the next logical step for Omenihu. However, there was only one thing that factored into his decision to stay for his senior season.
For the second year in a row, Texas is heading into its annual spring game coming off a bowl victory. While head coach Tom Herman, who’s entering his third season, continues to turn around the program, there’s a lot more fanfare being added to the spring game itself.
Hordes of NFL scouts flocked to Longhorn standouts Charles Omenihu and Lil’Jordan Humphrey during Texas’ Pro Day held Wednesday. But in the background, many participants used the opportunity to get any scout’s attention at all.
“It felt really good to be back out on the field,” head coach Tom Herman said. “You could see guys that are hustling, guys that play with great effort, guys that make good decisions, and we saw a lot of that today.”
