***Prospects are 2016 unless otherwise noted. List will be updated as we hear more!***
Sells is the most intriguing prospect on the junior day list in my mind. The Lovejoy quarterback has offers from the likes of Ohio State, Clemson, Texas, Iowa and SMU. Chad Morris’ relationship with Sells is the key to landing the highly touted southpaw. When Morris was hired, Sells commented about now being able to go and talk to Morris whenever he wants now.
Prospects in attendanceChris Robison: Mesquite Horn (2017)
Luke Anthony: Ft. Worth All Saints
Keondre Wudtee: Bossier City, LA
Quick TakeWhile Sells is the biggest visitor, 2017 Mesquite Horn QB Chris Robison is just as good of a prospect and getting him on campus early and often is a great idea. Robison has a great arm and tremendous ability to move as well. Anthony and Wudtee are two solid 2016 prospects to get on campus. While Anthony may be a little farther down the list, Wudtee is garnering major attention.
Prospects in attendanceReggie Cole: Dallas Carter
Aubrey White: Wylie East
Eno Benjamin: Wylie East (2017)
K.D. Nixon: DeSoto (2017)
Brandon Stephens: Plano East
Daiquain Jackson: Mesquite Poteet (2017)
Quick TakeAubrey White and Eno Benjamin would be a heck of a tandem to get to SMU in consecutive years. Nixon is an electric back that SMU immediately offered right after Morris was hired. Stephens is another Plano East product SMU is after and would fit great in Morris offense…right alongside Ade Omotosho.
Wide Receivers/Tight Ends
Prospects in attendanceAdewale Omotosho: Plano East
Isaiah Harris: Ft. Worth All Saints
J.C. Chalk: Argyle
Donovan Duvernay: Sachse
Sean Dykes: Manvel
Kerry Hall: Allen
Anthony Hawkins: Arlington Bowie
Michael Irvin, Jr.: Prestonwood Christian
Khairi Muhammad: DeSoto
Quick TakeThe name that jumps out at you right away is Michael Irvin, Jr., but the Prestonwood Christian receiver doesn’t have an offer. Argyle tight end J C Chalk is committed to Clemson, but you can bet if something happened with the Tigers, SMU would be right there. Duvernay is a big-time playmaker and Ade Omotosho is a receiver that I expect SMU to land.
Prospects in attendanceClarence Henderson: Skyline
Harrison Barton: Houston Christian
Jack Anderson: Frisco (2017)
Braxton Webb: San Angelo Central
Quick TakeJack Anderson is a local 2017 product that is getting major attention and SMU is all over him. Anderson has been on campus multiple times and it’s a big deal that Anderson is continuing to return to the Hilltop for visits. SMU should be right in it for Anderson when his time comes to decide. Henderson is an uber-athletic lineman that will need to pack the weight on, but the staff loves his ability to move, something that is key in Morris’ offense.
Prospects in attendanceGerrit Choate: Prestonwood Christian
Will Jones: Prestonwood Christian
Demerick Gary: Dallas Kimball
Kelvin Harris: Dallas Kimball
Braylon Jones: John Tyler
David Bearden: Argyle
Ken McLaurin: Denton Ryan
Mario Caballero: Denton Ryan
Quick TakeThis is the No. 1 position of need in SMU’s 2016 class without a doubt and the staff is bringing some high-quality tackles to SMU this weekend. Williams is the standout, but Braylon Jones is a target that SMU has a good shot to land. Archie McDaniel watched in the playoffs and Jones will likely pick up an SMU offer soon. Gary is another one to watch for an offer this weekend. The Kimball product believes SMU is close to offering.
Jordan Carmouche is the other prospect visiting and is almost identical to Williams build-wise. Both are used to coming off the edge and Carmouche may have the ability to fill out more and run. The staff offered both linebacker prospects and both are fundamentally sound and great fits in the 4-2-5.
Prospects in AttendanceSI Kilinc: Southside (Ark.)
Prospects in attendanceCaesar Williams: South Grand Prairie
Greg Eisworth: South Grand Prairie
Josh Drayden: Bishop Dunne
Ardran Carr: Arlington Bowie
Parrish Cobb: Waco La Vega
Quick TakeCobb, Eisworth and Drayden all have offers from SMU and it’s a big step to get Eisworth on campus especially. Eisworth and Cobb both have Baylor and Tulsa offers as well and SMU will have stiff competition to land them. All three are talented defensive backs and SMU is looking good early with a solid group in the secondary coming to visit.
