North Texas Fills a Huge Need for the 2018 Season

Brett Vito first broke the story of Caleb Colvin committing to North Texas for the 2018 season, once his story is up we'll link to it as well. As always follow the czar of Mean Green sports and read the DRC daily. 

Caleb Colvin is a big, 6-4, 285, defensive tackle from North Eastern Oklahoma A&M. That's a mouthful. NEO A&M is still a mouthful, but we'll go with that. Colvin is a rising prospect, drawing interest from several Big 12 and Power 5 programs for the 2019 season; however, he's going to Denton to play in 2018. 

According to 24/7s GoPokes site, Colvin, from Owasso, Oklahoma suffered an ACL injury and had grade issues, hence why Colvin ended up at NEO A&M. Colvin injured his knee the summer before his senior season while attending a camp at Baylor. Colvin suffered a shoulder injury as well, missing the 2017 season. In spite of his injury issues, Colvin is a plus athlete, he lettered in football and basketball in high school and is fully recovered from what could have been a career-threatening knee issue. The Norseman's spring drills are on Hudl. 

He's got quick feet and active hands. He plays well against double teams and in the box, creating piles, and fighting off one on ones. The Mean Green might be getting a steal at a critical position for the 2018 defense. Troy Reffett's pieced together a line the last two years due to attrition issues and injuries. Colvin's injury history is a risk. If he fits into the Mean Green's rotation, it's well worth it. 

Colvin's older brother, Aaron, played at Oklahoma and in the NFL with Jacksonville.
