DALLAS (AP) Traylon Shead, one of three 10,000-yard rushers in Texas high school history, is back at the highest level of college football. He will be joined at SMU by Deion Sanders Jr.
The prolific back who signed with Texas out of tiny Cayuga in 2010 spent a year at a junior college not far from his hometown. Shead and the son of Hall of Famer Deion Sanders signed early with the Mustangs and are already on campus.
Their signings were announced Wednesday, national signing day.
North Texas added four Football Bowl Subdivision transfers among 23 signees. All will be eligible to play in 2013.
Texas State coach Dennis Franchione went heavy on California junior college players in preparation for the Bobcats' first Sun Belt Conference season.
