  Draft Scout by Conference

  05/07/20 - OLB *Joseph OssaiJr/2021, Texas

  Forget about any preseason accolades, which are sure to come. Forget about those NFL mock drafts that have Ossai pegged to go early next spring. A sure-fire team captain believes 2020 has to be the year the Longhorns break through. "It tells me nothing. I know it sounds like, 'Oh, he's … whatever.' But I don't care,'" Ossai told reporters Thursday. "I want to win a national championship. I've never won a championship. We didn't win district in seventh or eighth grade. In high school, we didn't win a state championship, so I want to win a national championship." Strong stuff, for sure. Texas hasn't even won the Big 12 since 2009. The Horns have been in conference title contention only twice since then - 2013 and 2018. And it's early May, so it's OK to dream big.

Still, Ossai talks with an unmistakable passion that's hard to dismiss as empty bluster. "Everybody feels it can be this year," he said. "It can't be lip service, though. You can't just say, 'Oooh, this is national championship year.' You saying national championship year is not going to spin the football gods into giving you a national championship. You have to go work for it. You have to put in the work. You have to do the things you say you want to do." Look at what LSU did, Ossai said. Look at that roster and what the Tigers achieved last season. It can happen in Austin, too, he believes. "I'm sure everybody feels the energy and the excitement and the anticipation coming into it," Ossai said, "but we'll have to wait and see." - Burnt Orange Nation
