Darvin Kidsy, one of the top players in UNT’s 2013 recruiting class, made a big impression during the Texas High School Coaches Association All-Star Game last night.
Kidsy caught six passes for 73 yards for the South in a 39-29 loss to the North. The Lubbock Avalanche-Journal published the full box online.
Kidsy caught a 32-yard touchdown pass on a night both teams threw the ball quite a bit. The teams combined for 751 passing yards. Jabryce Taylor, an SMU signee, set an all-star game record with 226 receiving yards on 10 catches. Dylan Cantrell, a Texas Tech signee, caught nine passes for 183 yards.
Kidsy ranked up there with cornerback Chad Davis and Keller offensive lineman Cody Nelson as the top high school players to sign with UNT earlier this year.
There is a good chance that Kidsy, 6-0, 170, could see action this season for a UNT team that struggled offensively at times in 2012. UNT desperately needs playmakers to complement Brelan Chancellor and Antoinne Jimmerson.
Wide receiver Carlos Harris showed signs of developing into a big contributor last year and UNT has high hopes for Texas transfer Darius Terrell, another wide receiver.
There is little doubt that Kidsy will get a long look this fall, though.
