Frisco offensive lineman Taylor Lasecki had a phenomenal camp in Dallas Sunday and the 6-foot-3, 260-pounder received an SMU offer shortly thereafter. It didn't take long for the big man to make a decision, as he committed to the Mustangs on Monday.

"The camp went extremely well and Coach Klemm said that I greatly surpassed their expectations," Lasecki said. "I called him and he told me that SMU wanted me as their center. He said that I was their number one pick in the recruiting class at center."

Which factors resulted in Lasecki pulling the trigger so quickly?

"I talked things over with my family and then decided that it's the best fit for me at SMU," he said. "SMU is close to home. It's only a 20 minute drive on the tollway from my house. I've seen what Coach June Jones did at Hawaii and I love the direction that the program at SMU is taking."

SMU offensive line coach Adrian Klemm sealed the deal for the Mustangs.

"I have a great relationship with Coach Klemm," Lasecki said. "He knows a ton about football and he's someone that I want to play under.

"I was planning on camping at Baylor, Air Force, Houston, and Washington, but I'm not going to those camps now. I'm going to workout at my school this summer and work hard so I can get ready to play on the next level. I'm also going to be visiting the SMU campus on Friday."

Lasecki is the sixth commitment for the Mustangs in the Class of 2011.
