3. Breckyn Hager
We’ll hit on the most interest choice to represent the Horns at Big 12 Media Days again. Hager is a very talented player with quite possibly a nice NFL career ahead of him. Yet, some friction with the coaching staff in the past caused him to miss some game action last season. That matter likely led some Texas fans to think that he would not be representing the program in this magnitude.
However, it’s likely that Hager put in some great work during spring camp and summer workouts that earned his way into this position. Hager’s performance on the field makes him a prime candidate to be a defensive leader for this team. He was just missing one thing.
If he’s able to be both a reliable leader for Texas, and one of the best pass rushers in the Big 12 in 2018, Hager is set to see his draft stock explode before the 2019 NFL Draft. The build up to his NFL career will start now. His ability to keep a profile together on and off the field under an intense microscope starts with Big 12 Media Days.
No matter what the questions may be coming his way, we’re sure to see some entertaining statements and answers from Hager. He’s the one selection from Herman that sticks out, and that makes him a must watch for a fan of any Big 12 team come the start of these festivities.
