Thursday night hoops, football recruiting notes

I wrote a little about UNT’s latest commit — Fort Bend Bush cornerback Chad Davis — earlier in the day and picked up a couple of other recruiting tidbits in the process.

UNT has three scholarships left to give at this point.

Figuring out all the ins and outs when it comes to 85 scholarships and 25 per class is a lot more complicated than one would think it is when you start counting players back to previous classes who transfer in at semester and figuring in junior college players, not to mention high school players and walk-ons who are put on scholarship.

For what it’s worth, I had Texas transfer Darius Terrell and Reggie Pegram counted back and have not added Louisville fifth-year transfer Zed Evans in, leaving the list we are running in the paper at 17. That would make sense since Dan McCarney mentioned a while back that this class would have 20 players.

We all know that UNT is after South Garland defensive tackle Charles Walker, although I don’t know how realistic that is with Oklahoma in the picture and a whole lot of major conference schools sniffing around now that he has qualified.

It’s hard to imagine that UNT won’t at least try to land one or two interior defensive linemen. UNT might just have to dip down a little farther on its pecking order.

Don’t forget that Louisiana defensive back Jermaine Antoine and Louisiana high school defensive end Claude George are still out there. Antoine is visiting TCU and George Louisiana-Monroe in January. George might also end up at Louisiana-Lafayette. UNT is still in the hunt for both.

On the basketball front, Clarke Overlander is out for a couple of days after the death of close friend Sawyer Camillo. Overlander and Camillo were classmates at Argyle. Camillo was a member of the Louisiana-Lafayette volleyball team. She died suddenly on the 22nd.

Sad story.

Overlander will be with UNT on its trip to Western Kentucky and Middle Tennessee this week.
