Spring practice running blog (Thursday edition)

Update 5:30 — UNT is scrimmaging.

Cyril Lemon is out there working at tackle. It will be interesting to see if UNT elected to move him from guard, where he has been really good.

Dajon Williams made a good throw between defenders in team drills.

San Diedo State transfer Dan Kottman made a nice mote in pass rush drills.

And that is it. I have to head to the basketball game

Update 5:10 — UNT is into team drills.

Dajon Williams is running with the first team. He made a couple of good throws.

Andrew McNulty is working with the second team and is struggling a little in the time that I have been here. He overthrew his first two passes.

UNT has a couple of key players out working on rehab. I walked by Reggie Pegram, who said he is doing well while coming back from his torn ACL, which is the same thing Dan McCarney told us earlier this spring.

I also talked to James Jones, who is on the mend after a freak intestinal complication. He is out this spring.

Zac Whitfield is running with the first-team defense in place of Jones and intercepted a pass.

I have swung by spring practice this afternoon to pick up a few notes and observations before I head to tonight’s basketball game.

The big battle everyone is wondering about is at quarterback.

This is going to be a long road to travel, but a couple of quick impressions.

– Dajon Williams and Josh Greer certainly look the part. Both have the size one looks for in a college quarterback.

– Both Williams and Greer threw nice deep balls in early drills with no defense out there.

– This means about zip at this point, but Williams was up first in team drills.

The new coaches are out working with their position groups.

Richard Abbe is working with UNT’s defensive linemen. I have a feeling UNT is going to miss Abbe this year. He gave UNT that anchor in the middle. I don’t see a lot of guys with the size to fill that role. UNT is going to have a lot of smaller and quicker defensive linemen this year
