Rider's Harrison Sorge verbally committed Monday to play football at the University of North Texas.
Sorge, a 6-5, 290-pound incoming senior, started all 14 games in 2011 as the Raiders' left tackle.
He said the biggest reason why he chose UNT over Texas State and New Mexico was his chemistry with the coaching staff.
"They really pulled me in," Sorge said. "I liked the coaches, and I'm looking forward to building a good relationship with them."
Sorge is the second Rider senior to commit to a Division I school. Quarterback J.T. Barrett chose Ohio State over several suitors in April.
Verbal commitments are nonbinding. Senior recruits can sign letters of intent on Feb. 6, 2013.
Sorge is following in the footsteps of Rider defensive lineman Dylan McDorman, who will be an incoming freshman for the Mean Green this season.
