Hulick Solid with SMU

Carl Hulick

Carl Hulick, the offensive lineman out of Anaheim (Calif.) Esperanza has been committed to the Mustangs since August. Hulick has already taken two trips out to SMU, which he says was enough to solidify his commitment…

Anaheim (Calif.) Esperanza offensive lineman, Carl Hulick announced his commitment to SMU before his senior season started. Hulick's commitment quickly followed his unofficial trip to Dallas (Tex.) where he had a chance to see the Mustangs gearing up for their season.

"I am still solid about my commitment to SMU," said Hulick. "I feel as though it's the place I am supposed to go. I was really led to go there through the Lord, prayer and family support."

Hulick discussed what impressed him the most while visiting SMU's campus.

"I was out there on an unofficial in August and saw them melting in the two-a-day heat. They were still having a great time, laughing and joking," commented Hulick. "I also really liked the family environment they have on their team. All those guys just really love each other."

Last month, Hulick traveled back to Dallas but this time for an official visit.

"When I went out there for my official it was wintertime and they still had the same team dynamic. They were all having fun and hanging out. Their team has a great camaraderie that I haven't see anywhere else," said Hulick. "The trip really solidified my commitment."

With the rumors about June Jones leaving and the departure of Coach (Adrian) Klemm, Hulick was a little unsure about what to expect on his official.

"I was kind of thinking, I might see something while I was out there that might change my mind, but it was the same-old and exactly how I remembered it," said Hulick. "I am really excited to head out there and be apart of their team."

Ever since Klemm's move to UCLA, Hulick has started to develop a relationship with Coach (Wes) Suan, who has taken over as Hulick's primary recruiter.

"I now talk with Coach Suan. Who has called me a couple times since Coach Klemm left," said Hulick. "He said they would be coming out to visit me soon for an in-home."

During Hulick's recent conversations with Coach Suan, they have discussed where the Mustangs envision Hulick fitting into their lineup.

"Originally they wanted me to play center but now they want me to play guard," said Hulick. "There are a bunch of seniors graduating this year, which means it's wide open at a bunch of positions. I am going to come out and compete, and maybe see the field as a freshman." Recommended Stories
