SMU picks up model prospect

February, 6, 2013
There are all sorts of strange and interesting recruiting stories around Signing Day.

But this one? Well, this one is about as unique as they come.

SMU signed a male supermodel Wednesday -- defensive back Myles Crosby out of Colleyville, Texas. Here is how SMU describes him in its signing day press release:
Became one of the youngest stars in the modeling industry at age 17, posing in Calvin Klein ads for jeans, underwear and the Euphoria fragrance... Has graced the pages of Esquire, GQ and Vanity Fair, to name a few.

Does this give new meaning to the word Beeeeeefcake?

In all seriousness, Crosby has put his modeling career on hold to play football, meaning he will turn down thousands and thousands of dollars to make countless hits over the next four to five years. And he is perfectly fine with that.

Crosby told The Dallas Morning News, "I have a passion for football and I want an education This modeling (stuff) could only last another year and then I’d have no education and never get to play football. I’d regret it for the rest of my life."

Still, Crosby is probably going to have to prepare himself for plenty of ribbing from his new teammates. How could he not, with a quote like this one from Gerald Frankowski, director of the men’s division at the Kim Dawson Agency:

“With him it was his cheekbones, his jawlines, his lips and his eyes,” Frankowski told the Morning News. “He is the total package.”
