Watch as Texas Longhorns football players get hypnotized to delight of their teammates

Per NCAA preseason training camp rules, Tom Herman and the Texas Longhorns had a mandatory day off on Monday.

So Herman chose to do something different. He invited a hypnotist Jonathan Yeager to campus. With a number of players on stage and the rest of the team in the room, Yeager went to work.

One of the funnier moments came from freshman Jordan Whittington, who would get offended anytime Yeager said the phrase ‘thank you.’

If you remember Whittington, he broke the UIL 11-man state title game rushing record in December with 334 yards on 28 carries, beating both Eric Dickerson and Johnathan Gray.

He went on to win both the offensive and defensive MVP awards as Cuero beat Pleasant Grove.
