One can tell the football season is right around the corner. News and notes around the UNT athletic department are coming fast and furious now.
I was meaning to mention this earlier, but UNT’s Helmets and Heels event was tonight. The event gives women a chance to interact with UNT’s coaches and learn more about football.
Dan McCarney mentioned last night at the Mean Green Club event that a big turnout was expected. It sounds like the event went over pretty well. A few photos showed up on Twitter.
And in other news, the UNT men’s basketball team made the cut for Whitewright forward Mason Riggins, who cut the list of schools he is considering to 10.
The list includes Long Beach State, Boise State, Tulsa, Oral Roberts, Colorado State, Fresno State, UTA, Grand Canyon, North Texas and Western Kentucky.
Here’s his recruiting profile.
Riggins took an unofficial visit to UNT over the summer. TexasHoops.com had Riggins ranked 30th in the state the last time it updated its rankings.
I picked up some other material on the football front today that I will try to get to in the morning. Be sure to check back.
