Former kicker Baylor is among a group of potential visitors to the UNT this weekend

Time is the only asset North Texas lacked to enter its first recruiting season under new coach Eric Morris.

The former Washington state offensive coordinator was only hired in mid-December, which made every day even more important.

UNT has shown signs that it is capitalizing on the time remaining until the February 1 national signing day and will look to build its momentum during what is expected to be a critical weekend of recruiting visits starting today.

Mean Green is expected to host a sizable group of potential clients as they look to solidify their class.

Former Baylor kicker Noah Rauschenberg revealed on his Twitter account that he is among the players who will attend the UNT this weekend.

Morris’ employees admitted they were hosting a group of potential clients.

UNT enters its latest round of official visits after a productive week in which Mean Green received a couple of transfers. Former Texas Tech wide receiver Trey Cleveland and former UNLV guard Philip Hill both took part in UNT over the weekend.

The Mean Greens have been loaded with transfers as they look to continue a 7-7 season that culminated in a loss to Boise State in the Frisco Bowl.

UNT has six FBS transfers on board, a group led by former Louisiana-Monroe quarterback Chandler Rodgers in addition to junior college quarterback Marcus Moore.

Rauschenberg will fill another key hole in UNT’s roster.

UNT lost Ethan Mooney to graduation after last season when he made 18 of his 21 field goals and all but one of his 55 extra points en route to earning an All-Conference USA honorable mention.

Rauschenberg was Baylor’s kickoff specialist and was selected to the All-Big 12 All-Big 12 All-Academic Team last season. He was selected to the All-Big 12 All-State First Team in 2018 and could potentially take on field goals and extra points for UNT in addition to the start of the game.

While the UNT is expected to continue to fill in the gaps with transfers, it will quickly shift its focus to filling its class with high school applicants.

UNT has picked up two balls since Morris replaced McKinney offensive lineman Desmond Magic and Broken Arrow (Oklahoma) linebacker Dietrich Moore.

It is expected that UNT will replenish its class this weekend. Morris and his staff will have one more weekend after that before the national signing day.
