Texas took a hit to its depth at quarterback as senior Miles Onyegbule announced on his Facebook page that he suffered a serious knee injury. The injury, which Onyegbule detailed as a “torn ACL and other ligaments,” could mean the end of his career with the Longhorns.

After being recruited to Texas as a wide receiver, Onyegbule played in 12 games as a true freshman on offense and special teams, catching four passes for 51 yards. As he detailed in his post, Onyegbule battled injuries in his sophomore and junior seasons, appearing in 12 games combined after moving to tight end over those two seasons on special teams.

When Charlie Strong arrived as head coach, Onyegbule was moved to quarterback during the spring. Onyegbule completed 5-of-10 passes for 60 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions in the spring game. He also scored on a 14-yard run. He was competing with Davis Ash, Tyrone Swoopes, and Jerrod Heard for reps at quarterback, but was unlikely to see any playing time.

Onyegbule played quarterback and receiver at Arlington High School in Arlington, Texas and was a three-star recruit in the 2011 class. He chose Texas over offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State and Texas A&M.
