Four-Star Safety Anfernee Orji breaks down his most recent trip to the Texas Longhorns

“I went to Texas on March 4 with my two brothers and my parents,” Anfernee Orji said. “We arrived at the campus at about 9, and we first talked about education.  A degree from UT is one of the best in the nation, so that got my attention. The facilities are all being remodeled, but the preview of the new model is amazing. And DKR is an amazing field to play on with a loud atmosphere which I learned from the Texas vs. Notre Dame game. Coach Herman actually wasn't there, we spent the day with Coach Orlando, and we figured out that he's a great man and coach. We talked about both the academics of Texas and their defense. I don't know of any future visits yet, and I have plenty of interest in Texas.”
