Cramer Ends Recruitment...Picks SMU

With just one offer in hand, Stony Point defensive end Brian Cramer didn't need anyone else jumping in on his recruitment. The 2012 prospect decided SMU was the school for him.

Playing behind Oklahoma defensive line commitment Jordan Wade last season, Stony Point 2012 prospect Brian Cramer's (6-foot-4, 230 pounds) isn't the most well known recruit in the state of Texas.

But, the junior has had a spring full of teams evaluating him. Now a starter, Cramer won't give teams a chance to look at him this summer, jumping at his first offer.

"I committed to SMU this weekend," said Cramer to Fox Sports' Josh Harvey. "It feels good to not have to worry about the process. I'm ready to play football at the college level and I'm glad it's over.

"I had Wake Forest and Texas State both heavily looking at me, with State saying that I was going to get an offer if I added some weight. So we will see if I pick up anymore next fall. Coach Hill said he really liked my hand placement and how I go 100% every play. He was really happy to have me on board."

So how long has he had an offer from SMU?

"Coach Hill came down to watch me practice and offered. I talked to him for about three and a half weeks, learning more about the program," said Cramer. "I talked with my high school coach and they helped me with my decision. So in all, SMU probably was looking at me for about a month or so."

Josh Harvey has covered college football and recruiting for Fox Sports & Scout.com since 2008.
