Omenihu Gets Texas Offer

Rowlett end Charles Omenihu talks about Texas's Junior Day, what he thinks of the Longhorns' offer and how long he thinks he'll take before his decision.

Charles Omenihu came into Saturday's Junior Day thinking that he could get a Texas offer. And sure enough, the 6-foot-5, 220-pound Omenihu left the 40 Acres with one in his pocket.

"I was really, really happy," Omenihu said. "I wanted to come here and check out the place, and I ended up feeling like I could get an offer. That's why I came here, and that's what I got."

Omenihu, whose other FBS offers include Northwestern, Louisiana Tech, North Texas and SMU, is among the best defensive end options in the state, as a result of his fantastic frame, athleticism and work ethic. All were traits that drew the Texas staff to him in the first place.

"They love that I'm relentless and they feel like I could be a great pass-rusher here and can run," Omenihu said.

Omenihu spent time with head coach Charlie Strong on Saturday, but also said that he enjoyed his time with defensive line coach Chris Rumph.

"I loved his personality," Omenihu said. "That's what really draws me to him. And I feel like he can be a guy that I could talk to off the field as well as on the field, and he could get me where I want to go."

Omenihu said he came in wanting to get to know the coaching staff and wanted to see how they interacted with the other recruits. After leaving Junior Day, he was quick to say that "Texas is standing out" as his top school.

And Longhorn fans might not have to wait long for his decision.

"I could make my decision anytime from now until spring football," Omenihu said. "But I have a feeling that I'm going to decide pretty quickly."
