I am down in Miami for the FIU-FIU hoops swing, but I did make a couple of calls on the recruiting front and talked with Omar Tebo, a defensive tackle from Liberty, Texas.
Tebo is coming to UNT on an official visit this weekend and said he would like to commit to UNT.
The issue is he is a little farther down on UNT’s wish list at this point. Tebo indicated that there is another lineman who is considering an offer from Tulane in front of him on UNT’s recruiting board.
UNT only has three scholarships left and several players still on the board.
There is a chance Tebo could end up at UNT. It just depends on the way things play out over the next few days.
Tebo is around 6-0 to 6-1 and checks in at 300 pounds. He was a first-team all-district selection last season. He finished sixth in his classification in power lifting at the state meet in Abilene last year.
Tebo said he has offers from Memphis, Lamar and Northwestern State. He is visiting Incarnate Word next weekend and Lamar or Northwestern State before signing day.
“I have met the coaches [at UNT],” Tebo said. “They are all good guys and I have family up there that would be able to come and see me play at North Texas.”
