North Texas First to Offer Jacksonville’s Chris Carpenter
The first Division I FBS scholarship offer has arrived for Jacksonville 2020 athlete Chris Carpenter.
North Texas was the first to offer Carpenter, he reported via Twitter on Tuesday night.
Carpenter (6-0, 170) became the 19th player in East Texas' 2020 recruiting class with at least one FBS offer.
The Jacksonville two-way standout played wide receiver and defensive back for the Indians this season. Carpenter finished with 31 catches for 501 yards and two touchdowns, and added 255 yards and three touchdowns on 24 rushing attempts.
North Texas is led by third-year coach Seth Littrell. The Mean Green are 8-3 overall this season and 4-3 in Conference USA play.
Carpenter, like all juniors, is first eligible to sign with any program that offers him in December of 2019.
