DALLAS (SMU) – Coming off a bowl-eligible season and the most wins in a decade, the SMU Mustangs have signed 23 student-athletes to National Letters of Intent, Head Coach Phil Bennett announced on Wednesday, February 7.
Of the 23 signees, three have already enrolled at SMU and 21 are from the Lone Star State.
"I have always stressed recruiting Texas and a 300-mile radius around Dallas," said Bennett. "We have managed to do that year after year. My coaching staff and I have thoroughly evaluated these players and I'm very excited to have them join our program. We also have good relationships with the high school coaches in Texas and in the region and that has helped again this year. This group of players will play a big part in our building a top-25 program and winning championships at SMU."SMU, the only Division I-A athletic program in Dallas, Texas, sponsors 17 sports and has been ranked as the top school in its conference for eight straight years in the Director's Cup overall athletic rankings.
