The SMU Mustangs dipped into Southeastern La. to score a pledge from a Northshore High defensive tackle Kemon Smith.
The 6-foot-2, 280 pounder viewed offers from Tulane, UTSA as well as interest from UL-Lafayette. Smith tallied 51 stops with 24 tackles for loss last season.
The Mustangs coaching staff, in particular head coach Chad Morris, appear ecstatic with the addition.
Smith demonstrates the ability to play 3 tech, possessing a super first step. He is thick across the chest and proved skilled enough to record an interception in a zone blitz scheme in 2016.
SMU now has five commitments for the 2018 class.
