Dozens of new offers have gone out across the state of Texas this week from myriad college programs. North Texas has been very active in-state, and Scout.com takes a look at the offers the Mean Green has issued in the last couple of days.

Coming off a nine-win season and a Heart Of Dallas Bowl victory, North Texas has hit the recruiting trail hard in the Lone Star State. The Mean Green has offered six Texas players since Tuesday with an emphasis on the defensive line.

Three front-line defenders received offers Tuesday: George Ranch defensive tackle Kingsley Keke, Mansfield Legacy defensive tackle Taaj Bakari, and Denton defensive end Dailon Holmes.

Keke's offer list continues to grow. The 6-foot-4, 280-pounder has more than half a dozen offers, including schools from the SEC and Big 12.

Bakari, who attended this past weekend's Oklahoma State junior day, is a 6-foot-2, 287-pound tackle with four offers from Colorado, North Texas, Oklahoma State, and TCU.

North Texas was the first offer for hometown Holmes, a 6-foot-3, 230-pounder who plays end in Denton High's odd front.

Three more Mean Green offers went out Wednesday, two of which were linemen, including another defensive lineman.

That was Burleson defensive end Kenneth Mann, who possesses the frame at 6-foot-4, 240 pounds to potentially move inside in a four-man front at the next level.

North Texas also offered Arlington Bowie offensive lineman Madison Akamnonu and Fort Bend Elkins athlete Jonathan Giles. The offer was the third for the 6-foot-5, 260-pound Akamnonu, who also has offers from Colorado State and Kansas State, according to the Bowie coaching staff.

Giles, who could play receiver or cornerback at the next level, added the Mean Green offer to his Fresno State offer.

There's no doubt North Texas' success on the field this past fall will help the Mean Green be a more visible program on the recruiting trail in the coming weeks and months.
