Ojomo played in 42 games over his Texas career, notching five sacks and 13.5 tackles for loss, 5.5 of which came in the 2022 season. Ojomo is joined by co-defensive lineman Keondre Coburn in the draft, both of whom have played for the Longhorns since 2018. Coburn was selected 53 picks earlier.

Ojomo announced on Jan. 8 via Instagram that he would be pursuing his professional career and leaving the University of Texas to declare for the draft.
