Former SMU QB Padron plans on enrolling at Eastern
Another SMU quarterback says he’s on his way to play at Eastern Washington.
ESPN’s Joe Schad is reporting that junior quarterback Kyle Padron says he will enroll at Eastern this summer. As a freshman at SMU. Padron replaced Bo Levi Mitchell who then transferred to Eastern where he became a record setting quarterback in Cheney. Mitchell capped off his career by winning the Walter Payton Award this past January after leading the Eags to a National Championship the year before.
The EWU Athletic Department said they will not comment on Padron’s status until he is admitted into school. Athletes aren’t allowed to transfer schools with less than two years of eligibility remaining, so Padron is reportedly planning to petition the NCAA for a redshirt season. As of now, he would be a senior next fall.
In 2+ seasons at SMU, Padron completed 446-729 passes for 5,902 yards, 41 td’s and 21 interceptions.
