Discus in the PonyStampede.com Board Room
It has been a good a week for June Jones and crew. A verbal commitment on Monday, Tuesday, and now Wednesday. Only this time, it was from a player that we didn't quite expect to hear so soon. Spring high school wide receiver Arthur Londy became the 16th commitment in the 2010 SMU recruiting class. This after a great showing in the FoxSports 7-on-7 state championships, where he told PonyStampede.com he would not be committing until likely after the season.
"The reason I picked SMU is because it's close to home. When I talked to the coaches, they said they have some plays that I could do specifically run," stated Londy to PonyStampede.com. "I talked to my grandpa and he wanted me to pick them because of their offense. My coach was telling me that I would fit well in their offense."
Spring finished 2-2 during the weekend. Londy recorded four touchdowns including two scores when Scout.com scouts were watching. At 6-0, 180-pounds, the soon to be senior runs a 4.4-forty.
"Now that I have my decision out of the way, I'm just going to try to get stronger and bigger than what I was last year," said the 2010 prospect.
Londy has not been shy with the SMU coaches over the last couple of months. The Spring product made sure to meet up with Coach Reinebold and the other SMU coaches when they were all in Houston a couple weeks ago.
"They were down at Houston Strake Jesuit and I went down there to see them. They were excited to see me and I was excited to see them," said Londy. "It made me feel pretty good. June Jones' offense really excites me as a receiver."
