If Trey Siggers were a couple inches taller, most of the Big 12 would've been sniffing around Duncanville High School. Instead, he's clocking in at 5-8 and schools chose to pass in spite of what his tape showed. Their loss might be North Texas' gain.
This offseason North Texas moved Siggers to safety, and by all accounts, he had a great spring. In the spring game, he stood out, looking like he'd been playing safety his whole life - probably because he has. At Duncanville Siggers went both ways and played offensive football very much like a defensive player, delivering punishment to unsuspecting defenders. Siggers didn't go out of bounds; he finished runs.
On defense Siggers' physicality showed out. Siggers used leverage to plant opponents. That raw strength translates, he might be the strongest player pound for pound in the North Texas program. North Texas must replace veteran starter Kishawn McClain, and Siggers along with several newcomers arriving for fall camp will compete for playing time.
For Troy Reffet and Seth Littrell met as spring ball kicked off and decided that defensive back might be the best opportunity for Siggers to get on the field. With his athleticism and physicality, it's probably an idea that will pay off.
