"We flew to Dallas Saturday and then we actually got lost once we were in the rental car," Boutte said. "I liked everything though and it went good. It was like taking a visit to the college. Coach Jeff (Reinebold) showed us around, showed us what they have at SMU. He sold the program to us.
"He told me that he wanted to see me work out a little bit at the camp. He told me to call him. He said that they're not making early offers right now, but that I'll most likely get an offer eventually."
Boutte, who accumulated almost 1,500 receiving yards in 2009, was impressed with SMU's campus.
"Oh, yeah - it's nice," he said. "They have a Heisman Trophy on display and they talked about Doak Walker, who went to SMU. The award for best college running back each year is named after him. The campus is nice and the classes are small. You only have 35 students max in a class at SMU, compared to around 100 at many other schools."
