Yesterday, on a cold and cloudy Saturday afternoon, SMU proved they are on the way back to great things, with a very successful junior day.
But, it wasn't just the 4-star players in attendance that made the day great. It was the amount of talent in whole that the SMU fans should be excited about.
Besides for Williams, state champions Euless Trinity were out in full force. The Trojans bought a total of four players: Williams, RB.) Terrance Tusan, DT.) Suleiman Masumbuko, and LB.) Jonathan Yenga. Yenga is the only one of the four to hold an official SMU offer, but it's our prediction that Williams and Masumbuko get one in the near future.
Another SMU offeree in attendance was P.L. Lindley. Remember that PonyStampede.com has been signing the Stoney Point linebacker's praises since we first saw him in the State 7-on-7 competition.
With June Jones' offense, great wide receivers tend to lineup to play for the pass happy coach. Yesterday's wide receiver attendees were a strong list: David Porter- DeSoto, Christian Jones- Westfield, Courtney Whitehead- Athens, Ishmael Harrison- Red Oak, Blake Gardner- Steel, and John Guerra- Somerset.
Along with wide receivers, June Jones' quarterback is also another coveted spot by recruits. Quarterbacks in attendance were: Jordan Are'- Alief Taylor, Aaron Shockey- Haltom, James Mauro- L.D. Bell, and Aaryn Sharp- Stoney Point.
Besides for Hankins, Lindley, and Yenga, there were other great linebackers in attendance yesterday: Colton Lyon- Boyd, Nick Morrow- Edna, Chad Polk- Woodrow Wilson, Ragan Robichaux-Kingwood, and Lesley Booker- Forney.
The offensive line will be a spot that has a lot of attention focused on it in 2011. The Mustangs had some very solid talented tackles and guards visit on Saturday. Besides for Drango, the Mustangs saw: Jake Brendel- Plano East (Dallas Morning News Top 50), Kyle Bockeloh- Cy-Creek, Ben Compton, Matt Wofford- Cedar Park, and Xavier Bartee- Bowie.
