Boutte Back From SMU Camp

The high-octane passing offense favored by SMU depends on having a number of quality wideouts and one of Louisiana's best receivers made the trip to Dallas over the weekend to attend SMU camp. Find out what Catholic-New Iberia all-state WR Devin Boutte had to say about the Mustangs.

It's no secret that SMU loves to throw the football and so it's not surprising that the Mustangs' summer camps have been heavily attended by wide receiver prospects. Devin Boutte of Catholic-New Iberia is one of the best receivers in Louisiana and the all-state wideout worked out at SMU's camp in Dallas yesterday.

"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."

Boutte, who is the top returning player from a 3A semifinal team, currently holds two offers (Tulane and Louisiana-Lafayette) and he's leaving for Ole Miss camp tomorrow (Tuesday).
