SMU picked up its first commitment in the Class of 2016 this weekend as key Mustang target and point guard Dashawn McDowell committed.

The 6-foot-5, 183-pound McDowell is coming off a strong junior season at Southeast High School in Oklahoma City.



Regarded as a three-star prospect, McDowell was previously committed to another American program, Tulsa, before opening things back up in April. Now SMU has a guard who coaches named the All-City Athleitc Conference Player of the Year last season as a junior and McDowell is a big guard who head coach Larry Brown can try to mold to help replace the departure of experienced leader Nic Moore.
