North Texas Announces Football Signing Class




Denton (02/02/05 North Texas head coach Darrell Dickey has announced that 25 players have signed National Letters of Intent to play football for the Mean Green in 2005.

Among the class are 19 high school seniors and four junior college transfers. The remaining two signees graduated high school in 2004 and are currently enrolled in classes at North Texas. Of the 19 high school seniors, 17 are from Texas, with the other two coming from Oklahoma. North Texas returns 10 starters from a team that finished 7-5 and won its fourth straight Sun Belt Conference title in 2004.

“It is a compliment to this coaching staff and the increasing success of this program that we have been able to sign such an outstanding group of young men to play football at North Texas,” head coach Darrell Dickey said. “We knew that we were losing a lot of quality football players and I feel very good about the young talent that we are brining in to help fill the void. We addressed needs on the offensive and defensive lines and in the defensive secondary that will be key to future success. This is probably one of the fastest and most athletic groups that we have ever signed, but we also added some size. This class definitely has the potential to help secure this program as a justifiable competitor in the Sun Belt Conference and beyond.”
