What happened to our walk-on program?


Recommended Posts

Guys like Chris Hurd, Sarge and many others used to be big pieces of the defense.  What has happened to the UNT walk on program?  We need to bring it back.  It gives us an ad stage over TCU and SMU because our tuition is less.

In all seriousness there's also a massive emphasis in recruiting. I have no doubt that if a kid can play, we're gonna offer him a PWO, and not just hope that some stud will walk through our doors and save us.

Recruiting went online and made it much easier for players to get themselves out there.  

Now someone who may have decided to take the PWO opportunity here because it was their only/best option can just as easily get that same chance at a "better" school.

I think we are recruiting better also and don’t need to use as many walk on players. If you get recruiting right, you don’t need as many walk ons. That being said, walk ons Pirtle, Booker-Brown, Howell, Mooney, Rodriguez, and Burns were in the two-deep at various times. Honestly I am looking forward to when we have the depth to not need a walk on to play significant minutes.
