Friday night football notes

UNT will conduct its first scrimmage of spring practice tomorrow.

The Mean Green should be out on the field over at the Mean Green Athletic Center about 9 a.m. The scrimmage portion of practice should follow around 9:30.

UNT won’t go very long in terms of the number of plays it runs. The next two scrimmages following tomorrow’s workout will be much longer and will likely have more to do with how the depth chart shapes up heading into the fall.

The headline battle will be at quarterback. UNT is taking a long at all of its options, inducing Dajon Williams, Josh Greer, Connor Means and Andrew McNulty. Williams had a really good day in UNT’s last practice.

Tomorrow’s workout presents an opportunity for players a whole lot farther down the depth chart to make an impression. My feeling is that running back Erick Evans has helped himself in terms of working his way into the fringe of the bottom of the running back rotation.

Guys like Evans, who is fighting for a sliver of playing time, are the types of players who can really help themselves in the spring. This is the best shot guys way down on the depth chart have to make an impression.

Sir Calvin Wallace, who saw time with the second team in recent workouts, could also help himself tomorrow.

This is also the time of the year when one can catch up with potential transfer/walk-on candidates hanging around. I had a chance to talk with former L.D. Bell tight end and former Michigan signee Chris Barnett at UNT’s last workout.

Barnett left Michigan after signing with the school in 2011 due to family issues and is thinking about playing again. There is a chance he could end up at UNT as a walk-on. He looks the part, that’s for sure. He is also friends with a few players on UNT’s roster, including Anthony Wallace, a former Skyline linebacker, who transferred in from Oregon. The two went on several of their recruiting trips together their senior year of high school.
