The Eric Morris Offseason: Transfers & Hires Watch

Eric Morris is the new head coach of the University of North Texas and that means a lot of things but mostly it means : change is coming. Well, it is already here isn’t it? So far we have some transfers and recommits.

South Oak Cliff DL Keith Smith decommitted from NT. That makes sense considering the defense is likely to look drastically different with the departure of Phil Bennett. Bryce Drummond was a QB recruit that moved over to TE LB (editor’s note: thanks Ryne). He’s now in the portal. A reminder that the portal does not guarantee anyone is actually leaving but simply that they are available.

We will update this post (and the forum thread) with info.
