Marshall’s Chett Munden Commits to North Texas
North Texas has been rolling in East Texas with three verbal commitments from seniors within the region to supplement four local players picked up in the last recruiting cycle.
Make it four Mean Green pledges in the East Texas Class of 2015. Marshall offensive tackle Chett Munden announced Monday evening via his Twitter account he has pledged to Dan McCarney's rising program.
Munden (6-6, 303) is an important commitment. He is the second offensive lineman volunteering his services in the university's immediate recruiting cycle.
The Marshall standout received an offer from North Texas on June 11, shortly after its satellite football camp in Tyler. It was his first scholarship opportunity.
Louisiana-Monroe followed suit with a scholarship offer for Munden on July 19.
East Texas players currently constitute four of the Mean Green's eight commitments. Of high school players planning to move to Denton next summer, East Texas stars represent four of seven players on board.
North Texas' other East Texas verbal commitments are John Tyler receiver Rodney Bendy, Whitehouse cornerback Nate Brooks and Canton defensive end Samuel Miller. The class as a whole consists of three defensive backs, one defensive end, a receiver, a guard, a multiple position skill player and now Munden.
Lufkin offensive lineman Erik McCoy and Longview offensive lineman Broderick Washington are uncommitted players who also hold Mean Green offers.
The school has an outstanding hit rate locally. Only New Boston athlete Jeff Gladney has turned down McCarney's program in recent months, and that was in favor of TCU.
North Texas reached its first bowl game in nine seasons this past year with a berth in the Heart of Dallas Bowl and defeated UNLV 36-14.
Munden can officially sign with the program on Feb. 4, 2015.
