I stopped by practice tonight to pick up some material for a story in advance of UNT’s first scrimmage of fall practice on Saturday.
I picked up a couple of quick notes along the way.
Incoming freshman Roderick Lancaster had surgery on his knee recently. It went well. Losing Lancaster for the year was a bad break for UNT, especially considering the lack of experience past the top three receivers on this team, but he will be back some time down the line.
We are in the early stages of fall workouts, but I threw out the catchall question of who has made an impression early in practice among the young players on the roster.
You never know what you might get.
Dan McCarney said it’s too early to know who might earn a playing role among the freshmen on the team. But he did say that his best guess is that seven to nine of UNT’s freshmen will play this season.
