UNT signee Jeremy Combs is having a monster year for Carter and continued to shine this week, when he was named The Dallas Morning News’ Player of the Week on Monday.

Combs had 33 points and 31 rebounds in a win over Seagoville.

Combs should make a big impact right off the bat for UNT next season. Outside of Colin Voss, UNT has not gotten a lot of offensive production out of its post players this year.

On the football front, we are getting closer to national singing day. UNT is pretty much finished up with its class, but has an important weekend coming up:

Andrew Jones is UNT’s cornerback commit from North Mesquite.

The point being, UNT is hosting at least a few prospects on official visits this weekend.

I will see if I can run down a list of who is coming this week.

And while we are on the topic of recruiting, the Morning News is keeping a running list of the top classes at schools in the area. UNT currently checks in at No. 10 in the DMN rankings, No. 113 nationally in the 247 rankings, No. 104 in the Rivals rankings and No. 105 in the scout rankings. Those sites don’t have all of UNT’s commits figured in, but outside of Carthage wide receiver Tee Goree and a few others, the Mean Green does not have a whole lot of high profile commits.

UNT has a solid class with a lot of good players, but I wouldn’t expect UNT to rise much in those rankings unless the Mean Green pulls a rabbit out of the hat late with in the form of a player big statewide/national profile.
