Trey Owens, QB

One of the late additions to the visitor list this week for the Texas-Baylor game at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin was the rising three-star 6-foot-4 and 195-pound Cy-Fair quarterback Trey Owens.

Owens made his second unofficial visit to Austin for a game at DKR this fall. He also made the trip to the Forty Acres to see the Longhorns face the No. 1 Alabama Crimson Tide on Sep. 10.

It’s also worth noting that Owens is up around a half-dozen visits this calendar year to Austin. To say that he was a regular on the Forty Acres this year doesn’t even begin to describe it. That is a great early sign for head coach Steve Sarkisian and the Longhorns with one of the top early 2024 quarterback targets for this staff.

The postgame recruit reactions from Inside Texas this week mentioned that Owens loved the atmosphere at DKR for the Longhorns’ win over the Bears. Owens specifically said that the “atmosphere was still bumping” at DKR and that “it was never quiet” for this game.

Zina Umeozulu, EDGE

The most notable visitor among the 2024 priority recruits on campus for the Longhorns in the win over Baylor on Nov. 25 was definitely the highly touted four-star Allen edge rusher Zina Umeozulu.

Umeozulu made his third trip to the Forty Acres for a game this fall. He is another one of the regulars among 2024 priority recruits on campus in the last few months.

This was the first unofficial visit for Umeozulu to Austin since early-to-mid September, though. The first two visits for Umeozulu to Austin this fall were on Sep. 3 for the Louisiana-Monroe game and Sep. 10 for the Alabama game.

But it looks like this visit made one of the best impressions yet on Umeozulu. He was able to see his brother, freshman Texas OL Neto Umeozulu, beat the Longhorns by 11 points.

Umeozulu mentioned after this game that Texas really “feels like home” and that DKR was “really live toward the end” of the game.
