Stogner offered walk-on spot by SMU

Dalton Stogner, a wide receiver from Highland Park, took an unofficial visit to SMU on Saturday and received a preferred walk-on spot. Stogner holds the same type of offer from North Carolina and has a big decision to make before Wednesday's National Signing Day.

Dalton Stogner, a wide receiver out of Highland Park, took an unofficial visit to SMU Saturday and was offered a preferred walk-on spot by June Jones.

Stogner, who lives just down the road from SMU, told Scout that his No. 1 right now is North Carolina, who also offered him a preferred walk-on spot.

"North Carolina is my top school," the 6-foot-3, 195-pound wideout said. "I like the coaches there that they just got from Southern Miss. I feel like it is a great fit for me as a player and it is also a great school academically.

"They also run a similar offense as Highland Park and are looking for a bigger receiver."

Now that SMU has put its hat in the ring, Stogner has some decisions to make before Wednesday's National Signing Day.

"I want a school with a great academic record," he said. "Also a place that likes to throw the ball and is fast-paced. I want to go to a school that I feel comfortable with the coaches and the program."

Both UNC and SMU have those qualities.

FOX Sports/Scout.com's National Football Recruiting Analyst Greg Powers weighed in on Stogner:

"Stogner played in a high profile offense in high school and scored on about 25 percent of his touches. He is a possession-type receiver who got his senior season cut short with an injury, otherwise he might have ended up as a Division I offeree."
