Independence (Kan.) Independence C.C. three-star defensive tackle Shavod Atkinsin has made up his mind. The 6-foot-1, 316-pounder told Rivals.com he committed to the school of his choice earlier today.
"I have committed to the University of North Texas," Atkinsin said. "I just felt it was the right place for me. I've always liked the school ever since I took my official visit."
Atkinsin was also offered a scholarship by Sam Houston State and was being recruited by Arkansas, N.C. State and Tulsa. He visited UNT back on Nov. 14 and it was a visit he really liked.
"They had a lot of stuff I didn't expect," Atkinsin said after the visit. "They had a nice Rec Center where everybody could hang out in. The dorms were really nice. The field was pretty tight, too. They offered me a scholarship, and I really like it down there."
