UNT pulled off one a recruiting steal this week, when Brock Berglund enrolled at the school.
The former all-state quarterback in Colorado and Kansas signee left Scottsdale Community College and decided to play for the Mean Green. A couple of people have asked me how many years he has left to play.
The story was one that took a few twists and turns while I was talking to different people yesterday. In the end, I found a solid source. He has three years beginning in 2013. It was a little tough to figure out considering how many places he has been over the last few years.
The question now is if he will pan out.
UNT has brought in several transfers over the years and has hit on a few of them. Marcus Trice looks like he will be a good player. The book is still out on Arkansas transfer Cam Feldt.
There is no guarantee Berglund will be a hit, though.
UNT’s history is filled with transfer busts.
Tyler Stradford never made the impact UNT hoped he would. Neither did William Cole.
Both were billed as the next big thing by UNT.
Something tells me Berglund will be different.
He’s bounced around, but he has the natural skills that a lot of UNT quarterbacks have lacked the last several years. He was the Class 4A MVP in Colorado as a senior. Better yet, he’s 6-4 and can run.
UNT hasn’t had an All-Sun Belt quarterback since 2004, when Scott Hall (who should be in the UNT Hall of Fame, by the way) earned all league honors for the second straight season. Berglund could be that next all-league type player.
The best part about the way this all sets up is that Berglund will have a chance to hang around this season and learn the system.
There just isn’t any downside to UNT adding Berglund.
