UNT WR outlook

North Texas wide receiver Roderic Burns (24) breaks free from Southern Miss defensive back Malik Shorts during a game in the 2020 season at Apogee Stadium.

North Texas looked like it might be in trouble early last season when it came to its wide receivers, a group that was expected to be one of the Mean Green’s strengths.

UNT lost starters Jyaire Shorter and Tommy Bush to season-ending injuries by the third week of the season. Deonte Simpson dealt with injury issues early in the year and was later dismissed due to a violation of team rules after playing in three games.
