What gives?  It only shows two offers on 247 and the posting Monday indicates 13 offers.  It doesn't even show our offer.  He also hasn't been rated.  

Maybe a late bloomer or grades?  I hear you thougyh I thought the same thing.  Why no more interest?

Commits! Looks like he will be joining the team for the fall so he’s a 2021 commit rather than 2022.

So Billy what’s your gut opinion on this new commit. He is a big guy but only had two offers according to 24/7 in HS. I did see in a earlier post that there were other CUSA schools who showed interest but no link attached to see what other offers he has received as a JUCO.

I haven’t watched the film but I know our tackle depth is not great right now. Jacob Farrell was supposed to be our starting left tackle this season and Erik Williams was looking like a potential heir apparent to Jacob Brammer at right tackle. Both left the team in January.

We brought in one high school tackle in Rayvon Crum who looks very promising but it makes sense to bring in someone a little older to provide the immediate depth this season.

His 24/7 page needs updating but according to his Twitter his other FBS offers received in the last 3ish months were: Texas State, Utah State, UTSA, UNLV, Charlotte, LA Tech, UAB, Indiana, Marshall, and Buffalo.  

Any time we beat out 10 other programs for an OL recruit (including 5 from our own conference) I'll consider that a big win.  

Well that’s more like it!  I’m disappointed 247 doesn’t do better updates but not surprised.

I did not know that Jason Brammer left the team. If I remember he was the converted TE to tackle and here on GMG a lot of promised was shown in him. Did he graduate, transfer, or just give up on the game?

Jacob Farrell and Erik Williams left the team. Brammer is still the starting Right Tackle and was 2nd team all conference last year.

  • BillySee58 changed the title to '21 JUCO OT Offer: Kaci Moreka; Trinity Valley

Sounds like he likes pizza, fries and canteloupe for lunch.
 

Quote

 

Kaci Moreka, a 6-foot-5, 284-pound offensive lineman hauled in a load of pizza, fries and canteloupe for lunch.

“I kept track of (calories and intake) for a nutrition class I had, but now I just eat whatever I can to get bigger and stronger,” Moreka said.

Kaci redshirted his 1st season at UNC and then started

ON THE LINE
 
Four of Northern Colorado's currently listed starters on the offensive line did not start a game prior to 2019. Center Max Bruner and left tackle Kaci Moreka redshirted last season before moving into the lineup this season. Air Force transfer, and former defensive lineman, Matthew Gaiter started for the first time last week at right guard. Right tackle Grant Stephen played in four games last season, but did not register a start.

      UNT Athletics: North Texas opens state-of-the-art Bruzzy’s UNT Golf Facility 
      Loyal donor ‘Bruzzy’ makes key contribution  
      For more information contact: Taylor Bryan, 254-709-4411, Taylor.Bryan@unt.edu 
       
      DENTON, Texas – After nearly two years of planning and construction, Bruzzy’s UNT Golf Facility had its ribbon-cutting ceremony Saturday, Sept. 18, prior to the Mean Green’s football game against UAB with both the men’s and women’s teams on hand along with North Texas president Neal J. Smatresk, Vice President and Director of Athletics Wren Baker, members of the UNT System Board of Regents, and the facility’s namesake and lead donor, Jerome “Bruzzy” Westheimer. 
       
      The $3 million on-campus practice facility is located on the east side of the former Eagle Point Golf Course on the east side of Apogee Stadium and Victory Hall, and houses both the men’s and women’s golf team. Bruzzy’s UNT Golf Facility is 5,047 square feet and features two hitting bays with state-of-the-art swing analysis and technology. Additional features include a virtual putting green along with chipping and putting areas, locker rooms, study space, coaches offices, a lounge and kitchen area.  The North Texas men's and women's golf teams have not had an on-campus outdoor training facility since the former Eagle Point Golf Course was shut down in 2003. 
       
      Westheimer has been instrumental in the upgrade and development of the UNT golf programs and other university educational endeavors over the past several years. He was honored as the recipient of the 2019 Wings of Eagles Award, which is the most prestigious award presented by the president for a person who embodies the true spirit of UNT through engagement, generosity and affinity.  He celebrated the grand opening by hitting an exploding ball filled with streamers for the ceremonial first drive at the facility along with a ribbon cutting by President Smatresk. 
       
      Other gifts for the project came from Ken and Ann Newman, C. Dan and Le’Nore Smith, David and Lynn Riley, Sam and Valerie Golden, Tom Klammer, Ernie Kuehne, Knowles Cornwell, Ward and Joyce White and Brad and Vicki Olson.  
         
      The Mean Green men's golf team has a long history of success, including four NCAA national championships, winning 31 conference championships and making 35 NCAA postseason appearances. Head coach Brad Stracke has won three conference championships and made five NCAA postseason appearances since he took over in 2009. Sophomore Vicente Marzilio won the 2021 Conference USA individual championship as a freshman and advanced to the NCAA Regional.   
         
      The Mean Green women's team, led by head coach Michael Akers, finished last season ranked No. 36 in the nation, the best end-of-season ranking in program history. The team also claimed the first conference championship in program history in 2021, and current senior Audrey Tan won the program’s first individual conference championship. The team earned its first automatic NCAA Regional bid.  
        
      If interested in naming opportunities at Bruzzy’s UNT Golf Facility, please contact Mean Green Scholarship Fund at 940-369-7284.

      On what is different about UNT this year…
      "Offensively they are high tempo and they run a lot of tempo plays. Their biggest improvement already is their defense. They've had some times that they were good on defense and probably weren't quite as good as maybe they wanted to be the last few years. I see them coming back. You know they made a change at their defensive coordinator spot, I know him. They're going to be better there and they're always tough."
       
      On preparing for UNT high tempo offense…
      "I think one of the things we do and we have been doing for years is we put two huddles going at us just as fast as we can go. I think that is the only way you can simulate them is just practice. You got those two huddles coming at you. Your guys are just waiting for it. It is tough, and I don't care how much you do it. They move fast, and they are going to spread you horizontally. If you look at their splits with their receivers, they are at the bottom of the numbers. So, that really opens up running lanes and you have a quarterback who can make those throws. They have a transfer from North Carolina with a big arm. He can run so it is going to be a big challenge. Last year statistically, they were one of the top teams in the country in the numbers categories."

      UAB (1-1) at North Texas (1-1)
      When: 6:30 p.m., Sat.
      Where: Apogee Stadium, Denton, Texas
      TV: Stadium
      Series: UAB leads 4-1.
      Spread: UAB by 14.5.
      SUPER STAT OF THE WEEK: It was mostly bad news and worse for the Blazers against Georgia, but UAB did rush for 127 yards against the Bulldogs. It’s the most a Group of 5 offense has gained on the ground against UAB since MTSU in 2018.
      Joe says: The Blazers open their new downtown stadium on Oct. 2, but making it there with a winning record will be a miracle. This is UAB’s third road game in three weeks, so matching UNT’s intensity will be a challenge. The loss to Georgia was ugly, but UAB is the team everyone wants to beat in CUSA. I’m trusting this senior-laden team has the ability to refocus quickly, but I also thought the defense would put up a fight against Georgia. Mystery Blazers don’t feel like a two touchdown road favorite, and turnovers hurt UNT last week against SMU.
      Joe’s pick: UAB 24, North Texas 21
      Pro says: UAB is going to have to develop a more prolific passing game if they want to juice up the offense and have a more balanced attack. They looked stuck in the mud last week against Georgia. North Texas decided they can’t keep winning shootouts so they made the offseason hire of respected defensive coordinator Phil Bennett. Bennett is smart enough to realize Tyler Johnston III isn’t going to hurt his pass defense and will play at least seven or eight defenders in the box almost every first and second down. This spread is way too high with a punchless Blazers offense.
      Pro’s pick: UAB 31, North Texas 27
      Hero says: The Blazers were licking their wounds after a beat down by Georgia last week, but Coach Clark will need to get his team refocused for a conference game at North Texas this week. The Blazers may struggle to regain their footing against North Texas, but they should be able to win the line of scrimmage and earn a tough conference road win.
      Hero’s pick: UAB 28, North Texas 20
