The Charlie Strong Texas Football Camp wraps up for the summer on July 18. The final camp should prove to be worth watching as several players the Longhorns are recruiting will be on campus. It will be another opportunity for Strong and his staff to get to know the recruits and introduce them to the football program.
So, who is coming to the football camp?
Quarterback is a huge need for Texas. Fortunately, a big name will be present. 2015 Eldorado (NM) High School quarterback Zach Gentry will be attending. Gentry is 6-foot-6 and 230 pounds. The four-star signal caller would be a huge catch for Texas. Gentry is already committed to Texas, but it doesn’t hurt to get him on campus and see how the coaches work.
2016 Defensive tackle Mike Williams will also make the trip to Austin. Williams is from All Saints Episcopal in Ft Worth and is an early four-star ranking. He looks like a solid football player. Defensive line should be a priority for Strong, since he may not be sure what he has on the roster beyond Cedric Reed and Malcolm Brown.
2015 corner Kris Boyd will get to see what Texas has to offer. Boyd is being pursued by Texas, Texas A&M, Oregon and Florida State. Boyd was at Jimbo Fisher’s camp earlier in June. At 6-foot, he provides size at the corner position to battle for the football.
Ryan Newsome recently announced he has narrowed his choices down to five schools. Texas is on that list. The Aledo High School wide receiver could play a role similar to Daje Johnson. He is a 2015 recruit.
Charles Omenihu has already committed to Texas. The 6-foot-4 defensive end needs to put some weight on, but Texas wants to get his athleticism on campus in 2015.
Kameron Martin is an all-purpose running back starting to get more attention from the 2016 class. The Port Arthur Memorial recruit has drawn interest from a host of schools, including Oregon, Clemson, Texas Tech and Colorado.
