 DALLAS (AP) -If Justin Willis adds to his career lead in passing touchdowns at SMU, it probably won't be as the starter in new coach June Jones' run-and-shoot offense.
The two-year starter and former Conference USA Freshman of the Year is listed at No. 3 on the depth chart after Jones on Monday narrowed the starting quarterback competition to a pair of freshmen: Bo Levi Mitchell and Braden Smith.
Willis, a junior with 51 career TD passes, was an honorable mention all-conference selection last season, when he set a school record for total yards with 3,643.
``After going through all of the tapes, I felt like Bo and Braden had a better understanding of the offense,'' Jones said. ``I think they're executing a little bit better, so we're going to give them the reps. We will continue to give the other guys reps too, but those guys will get the focus.''
Jones said he told Willis to stay ready to play.
``We're going in the other direction right now, but the other guys have got to be ready,'' Jones said.
Using the run-and-shoot at Hawaii, Jones had two record-setting quarterbacks in Colt Brennan and Timmy Chang.
