Will Earley lands first offer, junior day invite

It’s been a good four days for 2013 cornerback Will Earley (Mesquite, Texas/West Mesquite).

After picking up an offer from North Texas -- his first scholarship offer -- in the middle of last week, Earley found out Sunday afternoon he was invited to a Big 12 junior day. Earley (6-2, 190) will head to Lubbock on Feb. 11 for the Texas Tech junior day.

Earley was excited about the invitation, but he admitted his confidence is still sky high from earning his first offer.

“It really made me happy," he said. "It made me feel like I have a chance to be someone and contribute to a team. It [UNT] is a nice school and close to home, and I want to be somewhere that’s close to home.”

Earley has built a reputation for being a good cover back who uses his size to his advantage. He also runs a low-4.5 second 40-yard dash. In addition to the UNT offer, Earley said he also has received early interest from Oklahoma.
