2016 Frisco Wakeland offensive tackle Jacob Todora committed to SMU on Sunday, and based on what he said, it’s no surprise that he will be a Mustang.
“I’ve lived in Dallas my whole life,” he said. “Why would I have a reason to leave? SMU is a great school.”
When he decided to commit, he wanted to let all of his coaches know, and to say they were happy would be an understatement.
“I tried calling coach Fry first because he recruited me, but he didn’t pick up,” he said. “I then called coach Morris, and he was very excited.”
For Todora, committing to SMU ends his recruitment process.
“I want to shut it down,” he said.
One of the reasons Todora committed to SMU was because he believes he will fit in with the program.
“I think I will fit in very well as a guard there because I have the body type for it,” the 6-4, 270 pound guard said.
In the end, Todora was sold on what coach Morris and his staff envisioned for the Mustangs.
“He left Clemson, so he is very serious about SMU,” Todora said. “He wants to turn things around.”
