2014 Review

Foreman’s biggest impact on the team last season came in special teams as he had a team-high 11 kickoff returns for an average of 18 yards.

He had receptions in six games played [did not play against UCLA] and had his best two games at the end of the season against Oklahoma State [2 receptions for 74 yards and a TD] and TCU [4 receptions for 91 yards and 1 TD].

He also had two rushes for 41 yards on speed sweeps against Kansas and Baylor.

2015 Preview

Foreman has worked exclusively with the 1s so far during fall practice, which should give you an indication as to how much the staff thinks about him.

He looks much stronger this season as he tries to help UT fill the void left by the departures of Jaxon Shipley and John Harris.

One issue Foreman had early on last season was ball security so he’ll have to make sure he has that issue wrapped up.

HD Projection

Foreman is one of Texas’ top receivers and is expected to be one of the top playmakers on the team.

That’s the hope of the coaching staff, for sure, as they’ve told Foreman they expect him to be the game-changer they recruited him to be. The staff will try to get the ball in his hands a multitude of ways, be it out wide, in speed sweeps, or in the return game.

How he ended up on the 40 Acres

It took a while, with many twists and turns involved, but Foreman and his brother, D’Onta, finally committed to Texas in late June, 2013.

Armanti was originally committed to Oklahoma but decided to decommit after numerous visits to Texas. He picked up his offer from UT after one of those visits to a Longhorns Junior Day.
