AUDIBLE:Being a Mustang is a great feeling- going to a prestigious school combined with a football team on the rise for success is all I’ve ever wanted since I first started playing football. It’s truly a blessing and a dream come true.

How Corbett fits

SMU lost a lot of leaders and major contributors at the linebacker position. Corbett has a shot to compete for playing time. It really is just up to him and how much he wants it.

What Corbett brings

Corbett is a beast- plain and simple. He reads plays extremely well and has a nose for the football. And you can’t beat that explosiveness- when he gets his hat on you, you are going to feel it.

What to Expect Freshman Year

I can see him putting on a little more muscle and competing for one of the outside linebacker spots. I love his motor and his ability to read and recognize plays. He could be a tremendous asset to SMU’s front seven.

Career Expectations for Corbett

If he works hard enough I can see this kid being one of SMU’s defensive stars. He has the tools- I’m just a little worried about his size. I really like his instincts at outside linebacker. He maneuvers through traffic so fluidly and blows things up when he gets to the ball- absolutely love this kid’s game.
