Offensive lineman T.J. Hensen of Tyler Community College was among three players signed by North Texas on Thursday, the second day of the mid-term signing period.

Defensive ends Joshua Wheeler, an honorable mention All-American at Tyler Junior College and originally from South Grand Prairie, and Joseph Ozougwe of Alief Taylor High School also joined the Mean Green.

The three mark the first secured recruits under new coach Seth Littrell, who has his work cut out before February’s National Signing Day.

To date, only four other prep players have committed to the Mean Green, including Fort Worth Arlington Heights quarterback Deion Hair-Griffin, who is being recruited as an athlete.
