With eleven commitments already Southern Methodist University is starting to run out of scholarships to offer. Fast.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound McHargue did attend a one day camp held by SMU June 15. That, however, did not ensure him an offer from the Mustangs. "I don't know where I stand," he said. "They did say I had impressed the quarterbacks coach and that they wanted me to send them my spring tapes."
Even that is a word of encouragement to McHargue who said that coaches told him they were looking to take fourteen players and only one quarterback. This will make it an even closer call for the senior who passed and rushed for over 700 yards last season.
McHargue is impressed with the university which he said he likes a lot. "This is the best academic school that is recruiting me," he said. Not to mention the fact that the quarterback has many family members living near the university who he said he'd love to play in front of on a regular basis.
Having head coach June Jones at the helm certainly helps as well. McHargue said he is already impressed with what Jones has done to the program as well as what he did in his last stop at Hawaii.
"You've got to be crazy to not want to go play in an offense like that," he said. "It's a fun offense. It reminds me a lot of seven on seven."
McHargue said he had visions of playing for the Mustangs before he considered playing college football a reality. That vision now has a chance to become a reality.
