At the conclusion of spring drills, Ryan Melton earned the praise of head coach Everett Withers, one of the few Texas State players who could say as much.

Withers also commended quarterback Tyler Jones, safety Frankie Griffin, nose tackle Dallas McClarty and safety Stephan Johnson for having noteworthy spring camps.

Perhaps the voters for the Sun Belt's preseason teams, which includes select media members and every head football coach in the conference, were paying attention to Withers' words — at least where Melton was concerned.

The league's 10 other head coaches don't think very highly of Texas State.

Even head coach Everett Withers has been frank about the state of the program with his inaugural season in San Marcos around the corner.
