After not hearing much about his recruitment all offseason, Andrew McReynolds was in Ford Stadium early Saturday morning watching SMU in action.
The 6-foot-4, 210-pound tight end out of Dickinson (TX) enjoyed his visit and now has SMU at the top of his list.
"It was a really pretty campus and the coaches are really nice," he said. "I like it a lot. I would say it's very much a favorite."
McReynolds says his recruiter, defensive coordinator Tom Mason, has done a good job keeping up with him and is recruiting him as an outside linebacker. Over the weekend, the SMU coaching staff told McReynolds that an offer could be coming soon.
"I've been talking to Coach Mason, and I talked to Coach (Eric) Daniels at the spring game," he said. "I do plan on taking another visit. I'm just not sure when."
Last season, he was named All-District on both sides of the ball after recording 25 catches for 433 yards and five touchdowns to go along with 39 solo tackles and a sack.
McReynolds is known for having a great attitude and confidence in his abilities. A permanent move to the defense side of the ball sounds like something he would welcome and handle very well. He could develop into a very effective outside linebacker with his size and the ability to run a 4.78 40-yard dash.
McReynolds holds no offers, but he has been in contact with Oklahoma, McNesse State, and Lamar University.
Spring practice for Dickinson starts next week, so McReynolds has already started preparing mentally and physically. He pitched for the schools baseball team this past season but is now focused on having a terrific senior season in football.
