    I had the pleasure of visiting with Manvel running back Garrison Johnson, fresh off his visit and verbal commitment to North Texas’s 2019 recruiting class. Johnson (5-11, 210) is listed as the 44th best running back in the nation per 247 Sports. A standout player at powerhouse Manvel High School, he was a 1st team 5A-11 all-district selection last season as a junior rushing for 677 yards and 12 touchdowns. Johnson played alongside 2018 UNT QB signee Kason Martin as well as many other high-profile recruits. Prior to the UNT commitment, he held offers from Virginia, Syracuse, Indiana, SMU, UTSA and South Alabama. UNT coaches coach Marty Biagi (Special Teams) and Tashard Choice (Running Backs) are his primary recruiters. Garrison Johnson Quick Hits Q: What led you to your North Texas commitment? A: "The relationship I have with Coach Choice. We talk on a daily basis. I hit up Coach Littrell a lot too. And it’s not always about football, we talk about life. Also, my Quarterback from this past year at Manvel Kason Martin is there and he has told me how much he likes it." Q: How was your visit to New Denton this last weekend? A: “I loved it. I got to spend time with Kason, some of the running backs and the coaching staff. They went out of their way to make me feel at home and spent a lot of time with me.” Q: Is playing close to home important? A: “Playing close to home and being around family has always been a goal of mine.” Q: Thoughts on New Denton? A: “The past two years Coach Littrell has been there is huge. To come in and take the team to bowl games in back to back years really stood out to me. I know when I get there it will only continue. Going to bowl games and winning bowl games, even going undefeated. Just like how Scott Frost turned around UCF, I think Coach Littrell can do the same at UNT. It is a great place.” Q: Thoughts on playing for Coach Choice? A: “Coach Choice knows how to get to the next level and is a great coach and mentor. His coaching style and just who he is as a person definitely stood out to me.” Q: Have you started recruiting for #F19HTCLUB yet? A: “For sure, I have been doing my homework on kids and seeing who would fit in well at North Texas.” 247 Page: https://247sports.com/Player/Garrison-Johnson-46036011 Hudl Page :https://www.hudl.com/profile/6005674/Garrison-Johnson

    Jeff Wilson signed a 3 year, $1,710,000 contract with the San Francisco 49ers, including an average annual salary of $570,000. In 2018, Wilson will earn a base salary of $480,000... Gots To Get Paid

    Y'all didn't see this rendering of Apogee on a beach, along with a mountain/lake/rainforest/desert landscape? There were big plans for that old golf course, but, of course, RV'd.

    While I'm not a fan of Incarnate Word or Liberty (Let's just leave that at an opinion and stop with the nonsensical religious debates), I see no reason to be booking world beaters in OOC unless we're vying for a NY6 bowl game. Conference championships should be our goal at present.

    Saw this awesome van when I was driving through Mansfield yesterday. Anyone know who it belongs to? While on this topic, what other awesome Mean Green vehicles can be seen at a football tailgate?

    “Last year we saw 21 FBS head coaching jobs flip over. Out of the 21 head coaching changes, only two Group of Five head coaches made the jump to a Power Five school (Scott Frost and Chad Morris).” Whenever Littrell does have that signature season, it will only benefit North Texas. Until then I believe any talk about him leaving is a tad premature.

    I just love being a North Texas fan. An article about how we may see a second straight 9 win season (you know, because that happens so much around here) devolves into an argument about where our coach will be running off to at the first chance. Jesus, I’d hate to double date with any of you. Listening to you tell me how you don’t want to take our dates to a fancy restaurant because “they’ll certainly leave us after the bill is paid to go home and hook up with a cooler guy” would just depress me too much.

    And neither of them was as good last season as Mason Fine, the C-USA offensive player of the year 2017. 13 QBs were drafted overall. Despite his small frame, if Mason keeps this productivity up, he will get drafted. He doesn't even need to improve much, he just needs to stay healthy. As an aside, C-USA had 10 players drafted. Obviously, that is just a snapshot, but that is twice as many as the MAC (5), and 3 times as many as the belt (3), and just a tad more than the MWC (9). Its a pity UNT couldn't get in on the party, but it is well on its way to getting there.

    Short version, since I've already done the long version a couple of times: Graham Harrell set national records and was a Heisman Finalist and went undrafted.

    Fine’s size will keep him from being drafted and even signing as a free agent in the NFL but his work over the next year along with the offense can put us on the map to recruit a future QB who could blaze that trail.

    Back in the early 80s when Division 1 split into 1-A and 1-AA the top division required a 30,000 seat stadium. Maybe we could have stayed in Division 1-A if we had known how lax they would be in their enforcement. Today, there are 20 universities in the FBS that do not meet that requirement. There will be 21 next year when Liberty enters with a 25,000 seat stadium. Three who are now shy (Wyoming, Buffalo, Louisiana Tech) qualified originally, but subsequent remodeling caused their capacities to fall below 30K. Charlotte, FIU, Old Dominion and Western Kentucky are among the non-qualifiers who are in Conference USA. It doesn't add to the stature of the conference.
