Michael Stojkovic, a linebacker who showed great potential early in his career at UNT before washing out of the program, has found a new home:

 

Robert Morris is an FCS school in Pennsylvania.

A school spokesman confirmed that he is on the roster for the upcoming season.

Stojkovic started nine games as a true freshman at outside linebacker for UNT in 2011, when he ranked fifth on the team with 48 tackles. He later ran into off-the-field issues, including pleading no contest to two counts of misdemeanor assault in September of 2012.

He eventually left the program.

I always liked Stojkovic. I hope it works out for him this time around.
