SMU moving up Drango's list....

Is SMU ready to get their first 4-star player in the June Jones era? PonyStampede.com talks with the Scout.com No. 16 offensive tackle Spencer Drango. Come inside to get his reaction to SMU junior day, plus see his new junior highlights on Scout.com.

If June Jones and crew continue the turnaround pace they are currently on, snagging a 4-star recruit is not a long ways off. Will Spencer Drango be the first?

The No. 16 offensive tackle in the country on the lastest Scout.com rankings, the Cedar Park junior has offers from SMU, Rice, Colroado, Vanderbilt, Arizona, Baylor, and Texas Tech. Although his offer from Tech was when Mike Leach was still the coach.

Last Saturday, the 4-star offensive tackle was able to battle the snowy roads, and make it to SMU junior day.

"It was pretty nice. I got to talk with both Coach Jones and Coach Klemm 1-on-1 and it was nice to get a chance to really meet them," said Drango (6'6, 264-pounds). "I got a chance to know them a little bit better, which was good for me because I'm looking for first academics in a college and then how I get along with the coaching staff. My parents knew of Coach Jones. He is sort of a legend. People know him. For example everyone knows Charlie Weis when you say the name. It's the same with Coach Jones. I was pretty cool to talk with him."

His visit went so well, he stated to PonyStampede.com that the day definitely helped SMU in the long run.

The junior is headed to Rice's junior day in the coming weeks and would like to try to go to Colorado, if his whole family can take the time to go," said Drango. "At this point, I'm still trying to work on when I want to make a decision. I have no clue."
