2013 SMU Verbal Commitments - ** Indicates Signed LOI
William Barns
Pos.:
OL / Ranking:
Loc.: Dallas (TX), Highland Park HS
Links: Profile | 1-on-1 | Scout
6-foot-3, 255-pound offensive lineman out of Highland Park who will need to be given some time to grow. His father played at SMU and was 6-foot-7, there is hope he can get that tall. Could play guard or tackle depending on how tall he gets. (UPDATE: WILL NOT SIGN WITH SMU)
**Carlos Carroll**
Pos.:
LB / Ranking:
Loc.: Tucson (AZ), Salpointe HS
Links: Profile | Video
6-foot-3, 213-pound outside linebacker, likely a Mike linebacker in SMU's 3-4 system. Very quick for his size and is a very physical player. Offers from San Diego St. and South Dakota St.
**Kolney Cassel**
Pos.:
QB / Ranking:
Loc.: Yakima (WA), Eisenhower HS
Links: Profile | Video
6-foot-2, 205-pound Pro-style quarterback who has a strong arm and tends to get the ball out quickly, perfect for the run-and-shoot. Offer from Harvard and getting interest from others.
**Everett Dickerson**
Pos.:
ATH / Ranking:
Loc.: Atlanta (TX), Atlanta HS
Links: Profile
5-foot-11, 165-pound athlete who plays safety and running back in high school. Projected to be a slot receiver for SMU as well as return punts and kick-offs. Is very quick and changes direction well. Offers from Arkansas St. and Memphis.
**Travis Fister**
Pos.:
OL / Ranking:
Loc.: Tucson (AZ), Salpointe HS
Links: Profile
6-foot-3, 270-pound lineman who will be a guard or center at SMU. He is very mobile, has quick hands, and is technically sound, which are all the things you need to be successful in the SMU system. Offers from Cornell, Navy and South Dakota St.
**Jeremiah Gaines**
Pos.:
TE / Ranking:
Loc.: Red Oak (TX), Red Oak HS
Links: Profile | Video | 1-on-1
Perhaps the top recruit in the class for SMU the 6-foot-3, 235-pounder will be given a chance at different positions including receiver. Has ability to play all over the field though. Offers from Arizona State, TCU, UCF and more.
Freddie Johnson
Pos.:
OL / Ranking:
Loc.: Temple (TX), Temple HS
Links: Profile
6-foot-2, 298-pound guard in HS. Will most likely play guard for SMU though he could be moved to center. Very big body who is still quick on his feet. Also very strong, benches 310-pounds. Offer from Eastern Illinois. (UPDATE: WILL NOT SIGN WITH SMU)
**Justin Lawler**
Pos.:
DE / Ranking:
Loc.: Pottsboro (TX), Pottsboro HS
Links: Profile
6-foot-5, 230-pound defensive end. Obviously, just a big kid who has room to grow even bigger. Look for him to end up around 250 by the time he gets on the field in college. Offers from North Texas and UTSA.
**Daniel McCarty**
Pos.:
OL / Ranking:
Loc.: San Antonio (TX), Alamo Heights HS
Links: Profile
6-foot-4, 280-pound offensive guard. For his size McCarty is very nimble on his feet and clocked a 5.01 40 time at the SMU summer camp. McCarty will likely stay inside in college though has a chance to be a short tackle. Offer from Rice.
**Zelt Minor**
Pos.:
LB / Ranking:
Loc.: Houston (TX), Lamar HS
Links: Profile | Video
Another big piece of the class the 6-foot-3, 260-pounder originally committed to Houston. Picked SMU over Texas Tech who recruited him hard late. Has potential to come in and make an immediate impact on defense.
**Jesse Montgomery**
Pos.:
ATH / Ranking:
Loc.: Dallas (TX), James Madison HS
Links: Profile
At 6-foot-2, 175-pounds Montgomery has excellent speed and plays the game very physically. Will likely play corner for SMU but has the size to drop back to safety if it was needed. Has a nose for the ball and a very hard worker.
**J'Marcus Rhodes**
Pos.:
WR / Ranking:
Loc.: West Orange (TX), West Orange-Stark HS
Links: Profile
6-foot-2, 187-pound wide receiver who has good speed and a very good frame. He has the ability to bulk up and keep his speed making him a dangerous outside threat in the SMU offense.
**Ja'Bryce Taylor**
Pos.:
WR / Ranking:
Loc.: Lufkin (TX) Lufkin HS
Links: Profile
6-foot-1, 185-pound receiver who the coaches really like. Likely slot receiver for the Mustangs in the future. Offers from UTSA and Louisiana Tech.
**Trey Washington**
Pos.:
ATH / Ranking:
Loc.: Gilmer (TX), Gilmer HS
Links: Profile
6-foot, 168-pound corner. He was the first commitment of the 2013 class and has nice speed as he runs a 4.65 40 and is working hard this summer to improve upon that. Interest from Rice.
**Myles Crosby**
Pos.:
ATH / Ranking:
Loc.: Colleyville (TX), Colleyville Heritage HS
Links: Profile | 1-on-1
At 6-foot-3, 200-pounds Crosby is projected to be a safety at SMU, the same position he played in high school. Has nice size and gives SMU the chance to be very tall in the defensive backfield.
**Mason Gentry**
Pos.:
DE / Ranking:
Loc.: Plano (TX), Plano West HS
Links: Profile | 1-on-1
6-foot,-7, 255-pounds and full of raw talent. Has only played football for a year but has tons of potential and is a very coachable player. In a few years Gentry may be known as the steal of the 2013 class for SMU.
**Spencer Hollie**
Pos.:
DE / Ranking:
Loc.: Dublin (CA), Dublin HS
Links: Profile
Another SMU legacy the 6-foot-5, 285-pound defensive lineman may not of been recruited heavily but has the chance to make a big impact on the defensive line for SMU early. Has a very mature build already.
**Nick Horton**
Pos.:
LB / Ranking:
Loc.: Garland (TX), Garland HS
Links: Profile | Video | 1-on-1
Another local prospect the 6-foot-3, 225-pounder will be a linebacker at SMU. He has all of the physical attributes but still likely needs time to grow. Another good piece for an already talented linebacker group.
**Cedric Lancaster**
Pos.:
ATH / Ranking:
Loc.: Houston (TX), Lamar HS
Links: Profile | Video
At 5-foot-9, 170-pounds Lancaster doesn't sound like much but his 4.4 speed and catching ability make up for his size. Prototypical slot receiver and may get a chance to make an impact on special teams too.
**Darrion Richardson**
Pos.:
DB / Ranking:
Loc.: DelRay Beach (FL), American Heritage School
Links: Profile | Video
A native of Florida the 6-foot, 195-pound corner player has a very physical style of play. Flew a little under the radar recruiting wise but has the skill and talent to make an impact.
Jerry Saena
Pos.:
OL / Ranking: NA
Loc.: Pago Pago, American Somoa
Links: Profile
A very late addition to the class the 6-foot-5, 265-pound offensive lineman is projected as an offensive tackle at SMU. Not much is known about his footwork and skill but should be able to add plenty of weight and be a physical player.
