Frisco Heritage hasn't had varsity football very long, but it appears the Coyotes will have their first D-1 commitment in the 2012 class, when defensive end Elie Nabushosi signs with SMU in February.
"I did commit to SMU today," said the 6-foot-4, 240 pound soon to be senior. "It was the perfect fit for me and my family. It was a team that I always thought I could see myself playing for down the road. I also think SMU could be the best place for me to get an education.
"Coach Mason was the my recruiting coach. I didn't go to the camp today, I just called and spoke to him over the phone. He was very excited for me and the team."
Frisco Heritage's first year of varsity football was in 2010. They struggled, dropping all ten of their games, but showed improvement as the season went on.
"We were a first year team, we didn't have a senior class, so we struggled at times. But, we are paving the way for future teams," said Nabushosi, who is a three-sport standout. "I played quarterback and defensive end last year. SMU wants me as a defensive end and at outside linebacker a little bit. I feel very confident with the defensive coaches and Coach Jones to have me in the best spot. Everything just felt perfect."
Nabushosi plays center on the basketball team and runs the 300 and 100 meter hurdles in track. He also participates in the high jump.
As a quarterback in 2010, the junior went 11-28, throwing for 190 yards. He also ran 56 times for 217 yards.
