Over the weekend, Corsicana (Texas) Navarro College quarterback Josh Greer took his official visit to North Texas to check out the Mean Green's program.
After returning home, Greer quickly realized that he wanted Denton to be home for the next few years.
"I really enjoyed my official visit. I have always liked UNT since high school. They had recruited me and I always wanted to go there. I got home on Sunday night and talked to [recruiting coordinator] Coach [Scott] Conley, and once I got off the phone, I knew it was where I was going to go," he said.
Greer let the coaches know he was committing on Monday afternoon.
"They went crazy. I heard screaming," he said with a laugh.
Greer, who will have three years to play three, ended up at Navarro after transferring from UAB. Though he broke his collar bone and only managed to play in six games this season, Greer finished the year with 958 passing yards for ten touchdowns.
Now, the quarterback is eager to head to campus and compete.
"The coaches have said that they want me to come in the spring and do the best I can while competing for the starting job. I know that nothing is given to me. I have to earn every rep of playing time and battle with the other guys," he said.
Greer is originally from Arlington (Texas), and says that though his family has always come to watch him play, they are excited to have him closer.
"They are definitely pumped about that, because I'll be playing right down the road. My dad has always come to my games, but it'll be nice that they can be involved," he said.
Greer will sign with the Mean Green on December 23; the delay is due to the one-year release rule on his transfer from UAB.
