North Carolina big man picks North Texas

North Texas head coach Tony Benford landed a verbal commitment from center Tony Nunn (Salisbury, N.C./Salisbury) over the weekend, according to The Denton (Texas) Record Chronicle.

The 6-foot-10 Nunn chose the Mean Green over offers from East Carolina, Cincinnati, Charlotte and Jacksonville.

"UNT has great coaches and a great program," he told the paper.

Nunn joins junior college power froward Anthony Norris (Midland College) as 2013 recruits.
