Help at safety could be on the way as Mansfield's Cam'ron Jones transfers from Nebraska to SMU

A local talent returning to the Dallas area could soon fill a major need on The Hilltop.

The Mustangs' depth in the secondary was tested this spring, both at cornerback and safety. Being thin on the edge was anticipated since the end of the 2018 season, but depth concerns at safety sprang up unexpectedly. The transfer of safety Mikial Onu was a major hit, as was the sudden, potentially permanent loss of safety Elijah McQueen (injury).

Nebraska safety Cam'ron Jones, a former 4-star prospect out of Mansfield High School (2018), is transferring to SMU per a report from 247Sports.
