Oregon senior wide receiver Josh Huff doesn’t mince words when talking about the Texas Longhorns.
From an early age, Huff, a native of Houston, Texas, wanted to play his college football in Austin for the Longhorns however coaches on Mack Browns staff told Huff he wasn’t good enough during the recruiting process.
That single phrase has given Huff all the inspiration he’s needed throughout his Oregon career to prove those coaches and football program wrong.
“That’s where I wanted to go” explained Huff after Saturday’s Alamo Bowl workout.
“That was my dream school since I was little. When they finally came to my game, I thought I put on a performance that would get them to offer me,…they came back and said I wasn’t good enough. Ever since then I’ve taken everything personal”
Now, four years removed from that high school game and disappointing news, Huff has the opportunity to showcase his talent first hand against the in-state team that rejected him.
Not only will Huff have that very rare opportunity, he’ll also be able to do it in his home state with family and friends in attendance and on a grand stage in front of a national television audience.
“I’m going to do my best to make them regret their decision” said Huff.
“I’m happy up here…I think I made the right choice of coming up here…but I want him [ Major Applewhite ] to feel it.”
