PonyStampede.com was just getting settled in Kilgore when were heard the news that Mount Enterprise running back Kevin Pope had decided to commitment to SMU! The junior, who also had offers from Stephen F. Austin and Louisiana Monroe, was hearing from TCU, Oklahoma State, and Tulsa.
Averaging a first down every time he touched the ball in 2008, (11.4 ypc) Pope ran for 1,162 yards on just 102 carries and scored 18 touchdowns.
The 6'0, 225- pound junior runs a 4.5 forty, but it is his power that impressed the SMU coaching staff.
