Keller Central defensive tackle T.J. Tauaalo said he committed to North Texas on Wednesday.
Tauaalo, who is 6-2 and 290 pounds, was a first-team All-District 4-5A selection last season and received all-state honorable mention. Tauaalo said he chose UNT over offers from UTEP, Utah State, Abilene Christian and Houston Baptist.
Oral commitments are nonbinding. The first day recruits in the class of 2014 can sign national letters of intent is Feb. 5.
