AUDIBLE: “The staff it great, they’re telling me that I might play pretty early on next year,” Honey said. “The academics and up-tempo offense are great too.”
How Alex Honey fitsWith the decommitment of lengthy receiver D’erren Wilson, Honey was the next man up and should become an immediate red zone threat for the Mustangs. Honey immediately becomes SMU’s tallest receiver and has the athleticism to make plays down the field.
What Alex Honey bringsThe Mustangs struggled to even make it to the red zone last season, but expecting an improvement there, Honey will bring immediate relief there. Honey also said that he expects to be a boundaries wideout for the Mustangs.
What to Expect Freshman YearI expect Honey to make some contributions as a freshman, but the stronger the 6-foot-4 wideout gets over the course of his career, the more red zone and third down looks he’ll get.
Career Expectations for Alex HoneyBy his senior year, I expect Honey to be a significant contributor and threat for the Mustangs. Honey should have improved route-running by this time, which could make him even more of a threat in the middle of the field.
