There were a few items of note to come down this weekend/early today. But first a quick public service announcement. UNT redshirt freshman forward Greg Wesley is still a member of the UNT men’s basketball team, coach Tony Benford confirmed this morning. I have been asked several times about his status out of the blue. He is still on the roster and in UNT’s plans.
A couple of people pointed out that he is not on the roster on-line currently. UNT took him off because he didn’t qualify academically, per NCAA rules.
The other item of interest in the basketball front is the status of assistant coach David Anwar. He interviewed with Southern Miss over the weekend and is pondering his options. He should make a decision some time in the next day or so.
On the football front, a member of the Chris Riddle camp sent me some new highlights yesterday that UNT fans might want to take a look at. Riddle is a quarterback out of Florida UNT is recruiting.
Interest in Riddle is picking up, but UNT seems to be in pretty good position.
And in other news on the recruiting front, Plano center Beau Hott picked up a new scholarship offer today when New Mexico offered. Hott also has offers from UNT and Oregon State. UNT’s chances to land him are pretty good and will only get better if it is the only Texas school to offer.
The good news of the day comes from the football front as well. Former UNT tight end Drew Miller is headed to a New Orleans Saints mini camp …

Miller had a good career at UNT and was a pretty good receiver. He had 17 catches for 191 yards last season, despite being more of a blocker.
And finally, I was asked to write the UNT preview for Saturday Edge again this year. Here it is.
