  Draft Scout by Conference

  Basically as soon as Tanner Mordecai was in the transfer portal Sunday, SMU offensive coordinator Garrett Riley was in contact with him. Riley, of course, is the brother of the head coach whose program Mordecai had just left - Oklahoma's Lincoln Riley. SMU was a school he'd already had on his mind and had targeted to some extent before entering the portal. Mordecai had watched quarterback Shane Buechele rebound from losing a rotation spot at Texas to become an all-time great at SMU. For this Big 12 quarterback from Oklahoma, the blueprint was there and the fit felt right.

"SMU's just a really good spot. It made a lot of sense for me," Mordecai told The Dallas Morning News. "They have a lot of returning guys. It's right down the road from where I'm from. I like the city of Dallas. SMU offers a really good academic opportunity. Man, it really just made a lot of sense in a lot of different ways." Mordecai spent three years at Oklahoma and the past two as the backup to different starters. The four-star recruit redshirted his freshman year, but he was efficient when he did play for the Sooners, completing 50 of 70 passes. He's capable of running the ball, but it wasn't a big part of his arsenal. - Dallas Morning News
