Texas Longhorns wide receiver Troy Omeire will miss the remainder of the 2021 season after undergoing knee surgery this week, according to head coach Steve Sarkisian on his weekly radio show.

The 6’3, 220-pounder missed the first four games of the season after suffering a knee injury during an open practice in preseason camp. It was the second straight knee injury suffered by Omeire in August — last year, after an impressive start that made him the team’s breakout star in preseason, Omeire tore his ACL and missed the entire 2020 campaign.

Omeire participated in spring practice after Sarkisian and his staff arrived on the Forty Acres, making one catch for 22 yards in the Orange-White game wearing a non-contact black jersey.

Ranked as a consensus four-star prospect in the 2020 recruiting class out of Fort Bend Austin, Omeire was the No. 241 prospect overall and the No. 43 wide receiver, according to the 247Sports Composite rankings, after committing to Texas A&M in June 2019 and then flipping to Texas in September.
