Heading into the Big 12 game, the Texas Longhorns remain largely healthy in key positions, with the exception of one area of need: the wide receiver, as the Longhorns struggle to create explosive games in the passing game. .
In the first year of red shirt Troy Omeire, a candidate for the starting job until a knee injury suffered in the preseason camp, he will miss a fourth straight game when Texas plays Texas Tech in Austin on Saturday. Omeire figured as the third receiver on the Louisiana depth roster, behind freshman Xavier Worthy and freshman Kelvontay Dixon redshirt.
A Longhorns player also suffered a knee injury at the end of the season against the Owls. Ibraheem was the fourth player of senior corner Josh Thompson, super senior Darion Dunn and second corner Kitan Crawford.
Another Texas cornerback will miss the tech game with sophomore Jahdae Barron for a second straight game due to a knee injury. A key contributor to special teams, Barron opened the season as the second-team corner behind senior D’Shawn Jamison.
