Texas Coaches Pay Onyegbule A Visit

On Monday, Texas commitment Miles Onyegbule was paid an in-house visit by Kennedy and Texas tight end coach Bruce Chambers. How did it go? We talked with the Arlington product.

Sources have indicated to LonghornDigest.com that wide receivers coach Bobby Kennedy will be leaving the Texas coaching staff, but it hasn't stopped Kennedy from doing his job to the fullest up to now.

On Monday, Texas commitment Miles Onyegbule was paid a in-house visit by Kennedy and Texas tight end coach Bruce Chambers.

"It went well. We just covered the last couple of things before my official and signing day," said Onyegbule. "I'm really excited about my visit next weekend. I haven't been to Austin in a while and I haven't really seen anything on campus. Or in Austin for that matter. I'm going to get a chance to see my dorms and everything, so I'm pretty stoked."

The projected Texas receiver was forced to play quarterback at Arlington this year. Onyegbule shined with over 1200 yards passing and over 1100 yards running in just eight games. He was able to find the end zone a total of 25 times on the ground and through the air.

"I was very happy, but I just wish I would have not missed three district games due too injuries," said the Arlington product. "There will always be a "what if" floating in my mind with the numbers I could have added to my total in three games."

With me moving to quarterback and not going through this season at wide receiver I need to focus on going against corners again. I missed 7-on-7s and stuff. All those type of things. I'm just focused on getting back to routes, hand eye coordination, speed strength, all the little things a receiver needs to be doing to train. I really need to get some work going against corners at full speed."

Currently Onyegbule is the No. 29 nationally ranked receiver in the Scout.com 2011 class. At 6-foot-4, 210 pounds, the senior is added nearly 10 pounds of weight since this point last year.

Arlington finihed 7-4 on the season with the Texas commitment as their field general. The Colts lost to Abilene in the 1st round of the Texas Class 5A D-II playoffs 31-28.

It was possibly Onyegbule's worst game of the season. He managed to go 11-18 for 186 yards, but was picked off and fumbled a ball. He added 75 yards on the ground.
