SMU commit Jordan Wyatt took a trip to the Hilltop on Saturday to watch the Mustangs take on Temple in their homecoming game.
With the Ponies rallying from 21 points down, the game proved to be an exciting one for Wyatt to have attended.
"It was a great win," the 6-foot-1, 180-pound safety said. "They were down 28-7, it was nice to see them come back and win their homecoming."
Wyatt occupied a seat near the end zone during the game. The experience of watching his future team live, in the stadium that he looks forward to calling his home, was special.
"I loved the game," Wyatt said. "Seeing them play at home, and the stadium, and the fans, who were great, I just loved being at the game."
Sitting next to Wyatt was his younger brother Jared who suits up at wide receiver for Wylie East. With Jared only being a sophomore, Jordan says that he wouldn't be surprised if SMU expresses interest in him within the coming years.
"They're probably going to offer him next year because he's playing some good ball right now especially for a sophomore," Wyatt said.
Although Jordan says the ever common sibling rivalry is nonexistent between him and his brother, the uplift and support is evident.
"We like to encourage each other and push each other to be the best," Wyatt said. "I like to help him out and tell him what he could have done better. I love playing with my brother. It's fun and it's a once in a lifetime experience. It's awesome."
While on the visit Wyatt talked to some of the SMU coaches and players including defensive coordinator Tom Mason and wide receiver Deion Sanders Jr., who had his biggest game of the season.
"The coaches were great," Wyatt said. "I got to meet some of the players, they're real cool. I met Deion, he was real cool. He said he would love for me to stay with SMU."
At 5-3, Wyatt feels that his Wylie East team is in a good position to finish strong and make a significant playoff push. The Raiders are 4-1 in their district and are on a four game winning streak, much in part to Wyatt's on-the-field success.
"I have 60 some odd tackles, five pass-break-ups, two interceptions, a forced fumble and a kickoff return for a touchdown so things have been good," Wyatt said.
