Plenty of teams have sought the talents of Newton juniors Tamauzia Brown and Darwin Barlow this offseason.

Add SMU to the list. The Mustangs offered Barlow, a 2019 RB, and Brown, a 2019 ATH, on Friday.

Brown played both receiver and cornerback for Newton in 2019. He finished with 12 interceptions to lead East Texas, while putting together more than 1,400 total yards on offense.

Barlow rushed for 2,246 yards and 38 touchdowns. Both were instrumental in Newton's run to the Class 3A Division II state championship.

SMU finished the season 7-6, falling to Louisiana Tech in the Frisco Bowl. The Mustangs compete in the American Athletic Conference of the NCAA's Division I FBS subdivision.

Barlow and Brown, like all juniors, can first sign with any team that offers them beginning December 2018.
