Levingston arriving with his future QB?

Offensive lineman Dontae Levingston, the top uncommitted prospect on SMU's recruiting board, will play tonight in California, then hop on an early-morning flight to Dallas with Serra quarterback Conner Preston. Read further to get the details on Levingston's official visit to SMU.

According to three-star offensive lineman Dontae Levingston, there's a top-notch SMU recruiter who is attempting to land a commitment from the Narbonne High School senior.

And we're not just talking about Mustangs offensive line coach Adrian Klemm.

"I get random texts from Conner Preston all of the time," said Levingston, the No. 34-ranked offensive guard in the nation. "He'll ask me, 'you don't want to come block for me at SMU?'

"I'll be at school and I'll get a text from him and it makes me smile. We're flying in together early Saturday morning on a red-eye at 5 A.M. I'm looking to have fun on the visit and get all of the info that I can about SMU."

Does Oregon have an advantage with Levingston, due to the Ducks' lofty national ranking?

"With them being number one in the polls, it does give Oregon sort of an advantage, because they're on national TV frequently, but at the same time, if you can't come in and play early, then what's the point?" Levingston remarked.

After opening the season with a 1-3 mark, Narbonne has skated through the past two games. The Gauchos have evened their mark at 3-3 with routs of Culver City (42-22) and Washington (57-16). Tonight, Narbonne should coast at home against winless Gardena High.

"We've been feeling good lately," said Levingston. "We've been coming together as a unit. We've been trusting each other on the field."

What does Levingston think about SMU pursuing his freshman teammate, Malik Cyphers, and his former teammate, JUCO safety Byron Moore?

"I was surprised that Malik got an offer that early, but I'm proud of him. He's been working hard," Levingston said. "I actually didn't know that SMU had offered Byron, but I'm sure it's Coach Klemm who is recruiting him.

"Coach Klemm is trying to establish a connection at Narbonne High."

The Mustangs hope that connection starts with Dontae Levingston.
