Irbys player host was tight end Peter Ullman. Irby had a great time hanging out with Ullman and the other members of the Texas Longhorn roster.
"My host was Peter Ullman. He was a great guy. He and I have hung out in the past. He also plays tight end, so it was really great to start getting to know him better," Irby said.
Irby also got a chance to talk with almost all of the coaching staff during his visit in Austin. He had great things to say about a number of his future coaches.
"We met up with all of the coaches," Irby said. "I have been talking to Bobby Kennedy for a long time. He was my recruiting coordinator. He is a great coach and recruiter. Coach Chambers is the tight ends coach, and we started a good relationship. Coach Brown is just an unbelievable coach. Those are the coaches that I talked to the most."
Irby raved about the facilities and campus at the University of Texas.
"They are awesome. They were tearing down the North side of the stadium. I have been there before, and I thought it was great then and I think it is great now," Irby said.
When asked about the best part of the trip, Irby said, "The best part was hanging out with my host and everyone else. I just liked to see how I relate to the guys. It was pretty fun."
Irby does not plan on enrolling during the spring but he will participate in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl in San Antonio on January 6th.
