UNT finished off one of the final official visit weekends before national signing day and it’s all quiet on the home front.

There were a host of key prospects in town over the weekend. To review:

Players who have already committed:

Brandon Garner, linebacker, Mansfield Timberview
Willy Ivery, running back, Sulphur Springs
Kishawn McClain, slot receiver, Rosenberg Terry
O’Keeron Rutherford, wide receiver, Carthage
T.J. Tauaalo, defensive tackle, Keller Central

Players UNT is still chasing:

Xavier Washington, defensive end, Cedar Hill
Caleb Chumley, Longview Pine Tree

Players committed to other schools still in play:

Inoke Ngalo, Euless Trinity, linebacker, Houston commit

UNT has two spots left, although the number of open spots tends to be a moving target.

Xavier Washington looks like the top target UNT has left out there. He’s down to UNT and Houston. Teams have the best chance with a player while he’s in town. I’m sure UNT would have loved to have wrapped that one up on Sunday.

Washington could drag it out up until signing day.

Chumley is another interesting prospect who is down to UNT and Louisiana-Monroe. There is a chance he could visit ULM next week.

Ngalo has been committed to Houston since last spring and was a surprise visitor this weekend. UNT tried to either land or flip a few players late last year and didn’t have a whole lot of luck, losing Kahlee Woods to Texas Tech and Darius Lemora to Washington State.

Ngalo would be a good get late, if UNT can pull it off.

UNT also has Elkhart running back Jeffrey Wilson coming in next weekend.

We should know more in the next few days.
