  1. Zach Peters, the former Plano Prestonwood Christian and Kansas forward who visited UNT this month, has passed on an offer to play for the Mean Green. Peters will instead head to Arizona. I talked to a source close to the situation earlier today who said it was likely down to UNT and Arizona. Oklahoma was likely out of the picture at that point. Peters hasn’t said much of anything throughout the process. He declined comment when I got in touch with him after he visited UNT. The Peters-UNT match made a ton of sense. Peters is 6-foot-9 and is the type of rebounder and defender UNT needs with Tony Mitchell heading to the NBA. And UNT seemed like the perfect place for Peters to start over after it didn’t work out at Kansas, due largely to a series of injuries he suffered after high school.

  2. "Randle had nothing to do with signing Peters, who was a talented player. If he had not had the problems (whatever they were) and stayed, he would have either started or been the 1st big man off the bench." Read more: http://forums.scout.com/mb.aspx?S=172&F=2481&T=11516983&P=1
  3. Zach Peters, a former Plano Prestonwood Academy standout who left Kansas in November, will officially visit UNT on Thursday, a source close to the situation said late Wednesday night. Peters was rated the top eighth grade player in the country in 2008 and committed to Kansas after his sophomore season. He was still considered an elite player nationally when he signed with the Jayhakws in 2012, when Rivals.com rated him No. 137 on its list of the top players in the senior class.

  4. UNT defensive tackle Richard Abbe was suspended indefinitely by head coach Dan McCarney today after he was arrested for suspicion of DWI. I did some digging, but couldn’t get the police report or much detail, not even second-hand information on what the arresting officer put in his report. Until I get more definitive information, it’s hard to say anything beyond what was on the jail report. Abbe has gone through some “not a big enough deal to make the paper” legal issues in the past. It’s pretty clear Abbe’s future with the program is in a bit of doubt. He wouldn’t be suspended indefinitely otherwise.

  5. Peters update: Zach Peters, a 6-9 forward from Prestonwood Christian Academy in Plano, Texas, who left KU first semester after suffering a series of concussions, took an official visit to University of North Texas on Thursday, according to texasboysbasketball.com, gomeangreen.com and Denton Record-Chronicle. Peters recently told the Dallas Morning News that he passed a concussion test in January after failing it four times previously. Brett Vito of the Denton Record-Chronicle writes, “Peters appears as if he would be a good fit for UNT, which lost 6-foot-8 forward Tony Mitchell when he declared for the NBA Draft this spring. UNT lost Roger Franklin, its other starting forward, to graduation. UNT has just one player over 6-foot-6 returning next season in backup center Keith Coleman. Junior college forwards Armani Flannigan and Collin Voss have both signed with UNT, which also has high school forwards Greg Wesley, Josh Friar and high school center Tony Nunn set to arrive in the fall.” Read more: http://www2.kusports.com/news/2013/may/03/fantasy-campers-get-meet-ex-jayhawks/
  6. It was a pretty big day in terms of news when it comes to UNT basketball yesterday with the Mean Green landing Vertail Vaughns, Karen Blair officially joining the Mike Petersen’s staff and the real zinger — Zach Peters visiting UNT today. While we are waiting to see what happens with Peters, here are some thoughts on Vaughns. I can see the concern with UNT lacking a lot of size at this point following the departure of Tony Mitchell and another forward who was a little on the small side in Roger Franklin, but going after and landing Vaughns was a solid move. UNT really struggled to shoot the ball last season at 28.5 percent from 3-point range and could use another high-character, leadership kind of guy. UNT had a ton of those guys in the past in the Eric Tramiels of the world, but had a bit of a void there last year outside of Franklin. Vaughns appears as if he can help address both concerns.
