Another possible destination that makes a lot of sense in theory for Omeire out of the portal in the 2023 transfer class is a potential up-and-coming Power Five program that is closer to home.

And that is why one viable destination for Omeire out of the portal this coming offseason is with head coach Dana Holgorsen and the Houston Cougars. Houston is soon to be moving from the American Athletic Conference to the Big 12 in 2023.

Thus, if Omeire were to transfer from Texas to Houston, he would still be competing against his former team in the same conference. That is if the Big 12 schedules a conference matchup between Texas and Houston next year.

Moreover, I do like the fit between Omeire and Houston. He would give Holgorsen and the Houston offense a talented big-bodied possession receiver on the outside. This is a spot that Houston is currently pretty young at as of this season.

If Houston does lose both senior wide receiver KeSean Carter and standout redshirt junior Nathaniel Dell to the NFL in 2023, that would mean the Cougars have to replace two of the three most productive wideouts from this year’s squad.

Omeire could also add some depth to a position group that will just need more numbers heading into the 2023 offseason.

This is also a coaching staff that Omeire is familiar with as Holgorsen and the Cougars offered Omeire during his recruitment out of high school. In fact, one of the leading recruiters for the Longhorns with Omeire, former Texas assistant Corby Meekins, is now on staff as Houston’s tight ends coach.

Given the ability to make an impact on the field next season along with the past connections with the staff, Houston is a place that makes sense for Omeire out of the portal.
