  North Texas landed Baylor transfer kicker Noah Rauschenberg on Wednesday. He could help fill the void after UNT lost Ethan Mooney to graduation. North Texas leaned on a long line of standout kickers over the last several years, from Trevor Moore to Cole Hedlund and most recently Ethan Mooney. UNT may have landed the next player in that line on Wednesday when former Baylor kicker Noah Rauschenberg committed to continue his career with the Mean Green. Rauschenberg spent four seasons at Baylor and was a two-time, first-team Academic All-Big 12 selection. He was primarily a kickoff specialist and saw 57 of his 75 kickoffs downed for touchbacks last season. - Denton Record

  North Texas lost the anchor of its offensive line after last season. The Mean Green may have found a replacement in former Arkansas State center Ethan Miner. Miner entered the transfer portal after the 2022 season and announced his decision to continue his career with the Mean Green on Tuesday. "See you in May UNT!" Miner wrote on his Twitter account.

Miner, who is 6-foot-3 and 295 pounds, will have two seasons of eligibility remaining with the Mean Green. UNT was headed into its first season under new coach Eric Morris with a significant hole in its lineup at center after Manase Mose graduated. Mose was a first-team All-Conference USA selection in 2022, when he became UNT's all-time leader in games started with 62. Miner started 24 games over the course of the last three seasons at ASU, including 12 starts at center last season. - Denton Record

  North Texas continued to add experienced players to its roster heading into Eric Morris' debut season as the Mean Green's coach on Tuesday, when former Texas Tech wide receiver Trey Cleveland committed to UNT. Cleveland announced his decision on his Twitter account. Cleveland caught 22 passes for 344 yards as a junior at Texas Tech last season. He entered the portal as a graduate transfer late last week. Cleveland has two seasons of eligibility remaining. The former Arlington High standout was a three-star prospect in the Class of 2019. He committed to Texas Tech over an offer from Southern Illinois. The 6-foot-4, 190-pound former Red Raider contributed throughout his time at Texas Tech. He caught eight passes in 2020 and 11 in 2021 before breaking out last season. - Denton Record

  There might not have been a bigger concern for North Texas heading into Eric Morris' debut season as the Mean Green's head coach than sorting out its quarterback situation. UNT took a key step toward that goal Tuesday, when it landed Louisiana-Monroe transfer Chandler Rogers as part of a three-man transfer haul. The Mean Green also added Georgia Tech offensive lineman Paula Vaipulu and Texas Tech offensive lineman Larry Moore III. - Denton Record

  Baylor kicker Noah Rauschenberg announced Monday that he's entering the NCAA transfer portal as a graduate transfer. Rauschenberg has been Baylor's kickoff specialist for the last four seasons, but has a fifth year of eligibility remaining since 2020 didn't count against eligibility due to COVID-19 restrictions. - Waco Tribune Herald

  North Texas quarterback Austin Aune said before the 2022 season began that it would be his final year playing college football. There were a few twists along the way, but that is exactly where the former Argyle standout ended up on Monday, when he declared for the NFL draft. Aune made the announcement on his Instagram account just days after a standout season that saw him guide UNT to an appearance in the Conference USA championship game and the Frisco Bowl.

The announcement ended what will be remembered as one of the more unusual and memorable careers for a UNT player - and for a college football player in general. The former Argyle standout spent six seasons playing minor league baseball and turned 29 during the 2022 season. He had one season of eligibility remaining, which led to an interesting few days. Aune got married and had a daughter late in his college career. It seemed unlikely he would return for another year on the college level, especially after he said before the season that he was ready to wrap up his time in college. - Denton Record

  2022 CONFERENCE USA ALL-FRESHMAN TEAM: TE: Var'Keyes Gumms, North Texas,...Gumms, who set a record for the most single-season yards by a tight end in program history, was a Second Team selection while Nwaiwu, who started 12 of 13 games for the Mean Green this season, landed on the Third Team. One of the top tight ends in the country, regardless of classification, Gumms finished the season with 33 catches for 451 yards and five touchdowns. His five touchdowns are the second-most by any TE in UNT history and is tied for 13th among all FBS TEs. Among FBS TEs who had at least 50 targets on the year, Gumms' 13.7 yards per reception ranks second in FBS, only behind Georgia's Brock Bowers who was recently named a finalist for the 2022 John Mackey Award given to the best tight end in college football. - North Texas Football

  2022 CONFERENCE USA ALL-FRESHMAN TEAM: OL: Febechi Nwaiwu, North Texas,...Nwaiwu had a strong 2022 campaign after redshirting a season ago. A 12-game starter at guard for UNT, Nwaiwu blocked for a Mean Green offense that ranked inside the top-30 in FBS in total offense, rushing offense and scoring offense. According to Pro Football Focus (PFF) Nwaiwu is the highest graded freshman offensive lineman in Conference USA and ranks among the top-20 among all lineman in the league. In 391 pressure opportunities, Nwaiwu has not allowed a sack and has given up just 11 total pressures this season. - North Texas Football

  2022 ALL-CONFERENCE USA FIRST TEAM: DB: Ridge Texada, North Texas,...Texada was called upon early in the year after John Davis, Jr., suffered a season-ending injury in the team's season-opening win at UTEP. The undersized cornerback didn't take long to seize the job and leave his mark. Through 13 games, Texada has 40 tackles, two tackles for-loss, a team-high three interceptions, and a team leading 15 pass breakups. Two more passes defended (interceptions + pass breakups) would give him the program record for a season, previously set by Kemon Hall in 2018 with 19. His three interceptions are the most for a UNT player since 2018. He enters the Frisco Bowl tied for fourth in FBS in total passes defended this season. - North Texas Football

  2022 ALL-CONFERENCE USA SECOND TEAM: LB: Mazin Richards, North Texas,...Junior linebacker Mazin Richards earned Second-Team honors after proving himself on the FBS level this year by finishing fourth on the team in tackles through 13 games (77.0) and leading the team with 12.5 tackles for-loss and 7.5 sacks. His 12.5 tackles for-loss ties him for 45th in FBS. - North Texas Football

  2022 ALL-CONFERENCE USA FIRST TEAM: KR: Kaylon Horton, North Texas,...Horton, a transfer from Tarleton State, was a Jack-of-all-trades this year and was selected as a kick returner after averaging better than 25 yards per return on his 23 returns and becoming the first UNT player to return a kickoff for a touchdown since 2019 when he notched a 99-yard kickoff return touchdown earlier this season against UNLV. He also has a receiving touchdown and two rushing touchdowns this season, bringing his career total to seven touchdowns (two kickoff returns, two receiving, two rushing and one punt return). - North Texas Football

  2022 ALL-CONFERENCE USA FIRST TEAM: LB: KD Davis, North Texas,...With one game left in his Mean Green career, Davis has already established himself as one of the most decorated players in program history after becoming the all-time tackles leader in last week's C-USA Championship Game. His 132 tackles is tops on the team by nearly 40 stops and he's the first player in program history to lead the team in tackles for four straight seasons. He also has three tackles for-loss, a sack, an interception and a forced fumble to go with four quarterback hurries. It's Davis' second straight first-team nod. - North Texas Football

  2022 ALL-CONFERENCE USA FIRST TEAM: OL: Manase Mose, North Texas,...Mose, a senior stalwart on the offensive line, is in his fifth year as a starter and has started every game of his five-year playing career to bring his career starts total to 61 games with one left to play in the upcoming Frisco Bowl. Assuming he plays then, he'll move into third all-time in FBS football history for career games played. He's led a unit that has blocked for one of the top offenses in C-USA. It's Mose's first first-team selection after a second-team nod last year. - North Texas Football

  2022 ALL-CONFERENCE USA FIRST TEAM: TE: Var'Keyes Gumms, North Texas,...Gumms burst on to the scene as a part of the Mean Green's potent 1-2 tight end punch along with Jake Roberts, but Gumms quickly became one of the focal points of UNT's high-octane passing attack. Gumms' 451 receiving yards set a new program record for receiving yards by a tight end. His five touchdown catches tie him for second on the program's single-season list for touchdown catches by a tight end - one behind Marcus Smith (2014). - North Texas Football
