UNT picked up its second commitment for its 2015 class today, and it was a big one. Sam Miller, a defensive end out of Canton who was on the wish lists of most in-state C-USA schools and a couple of out-of-state biggies in Kansas State and Oregon State, committed to UNT.
Miller is a high-level prospect and just the type of guy UNT needs to land to improve its talent level.
He projects as a weakside pass rushing end.
Dan McCarney is big on rotating linemen. Miller is the kind of guy at 6-3, 225, who one could see easily see turning into a 240-245 pound end who could do a whole lot of damage.
I will have a full story on Miller in tomorrow’s paper and will be sure to link it here on the blog.
I mentioned earlier that key cornerback target Nate Brooks will be in tomorrow.
I have a feeling that Brooks will jump on board here pretty quickly.
The point is that UNT brought in a series of key targets over the weekend.
I talked to offensive line prospect Chett Munden for a minute or two about his visit.
“I really liked it up there,” Munden said. “They run pretty much the same offense as we do in high school. I liked the coaches and the facilities. It felt like home. They have my interest.”
We have Twitter-based evidence that a series of other prospects where on hand …

And we’ve got a defensive line coach Kevin Patrick sighting as well.
I expect to have some more news to post here on the blog in the next few days.
