First it was (possibly) a Duke lacrosse player. Now, SMU is officially adding a pair of experienced football players as well.
The Mustangs announced Friday that they’ve added transfers Matt Davis and Cameron Nwosu (pictured) to the football roster. Both are expected to be eligible to play immediately in 2014, the school stated.
Davis, a quarterback, comes to SMU from Texas A&M by way of the JUCO ranks. A four-star member of the Aggies’ 2012 recruiting class, Davis was listed as the No. 3 dual-threat quarterback in the country and the No. 15 player at any position in the state of Texas. He redshirted as a true freshman his only season in College Station as he transferred in August of 2013.
Beginning in 2014, Davis will have three years of eligibility remaining and will compete immediately for the opportunity to replace Garrett Gilbert under center for the Mustangs.
In Nwosu, the Mustangs are getting a very experience linebacker coming off a knee injury that cost him the entire 2013 season. During his time at Rice, Nwosu started 25 consecutive games prior to the injury. He finished second on the team with 92 tackles in 2012.
Nwosu graduated from Rice, making him immediately eligible.
