North Texas' 11th 3-star commitment in the 2019 class is tight end prospect Asher Alberding from Clear Lake, Texas (Clearlake HS).
Alberding measures in an impressive 6-4, 230 pounds, and can move well for his size. He is listed as the 58th Ranked Tight End in the nation by 247 Sports. He chose North Texas over offers from Air Force, Rice, Yale, Texas State and Louisiana-Monroe. Alberding hauled in 14 catches last year for 261 yards and a TD as a junior.
His main recruiters at North Texas were coach Marty Biagi (having a great 2019 recruiting cycle BTW) and offensive coordinator Graham Harrell. He specifically mentioned his relationship with UNT head coach Seth Littrell as being important, as the two kept in touch during the entire process. Littrell’s past success with developing the tight end position (including Rob Gronkowski currently with the New England Patriots) also helped in adding Alberding to an already impressive North Texas 2019 commitment list.
