On Friday night, they received some good news from one of their visitors, when Austin (TX) Lake Travis defensive back Collin LaGasse gave his pledge to SMU.
"I committed to SMU," said LaGasse in a text message to Scout.com. "Coach Hill has been recruiting me for a year and I've always thought SMU would be a good fit. I knew the academics were great and football is on the rise.
"Today's visit was great. I got to meet all the coaches. It verified this was the place for me."
Seeing limited time in the secondary as a junior, he recorded 38 tackles, three interceptions (one for a touchdown), a tackle for a loss, and a sack.
