DALLAS (SMU) --- SMU Head Coach Larry Brown announced Jordan Tolbert will join the Mustangs for the 2014-15 season. Tolbert is transferring from Texas Tech. He will join McDonald's All-American Emmanuel Mudiay as newcomers on the Hilltop next season.

In three seasons at Texas Tech, Tolbert averaged 10.7 points and 5.7 rebounds. As a junior at Texas Tech, he was second for the Red Raiders in scoring (10.7) and rebounding (5.8). He averaged 9.8 points and 5.4 rebounds as a sophomore after leading TTU in both categories as a freshman with 11.5 points and 5.7 rebounds. Tolbert was an Academic All-Big 12 honoree in 2012-13 and named to the Big 12 Commissioner's Honor Roll in 2011-12. The Fort Worth native spent his prep career at All Saints Episcopal High School.

Twelve Mustangs return next season from a team that went 27-10 and reached the NIT championship game. SMU reached as high as No. 18 in the national polls while accumulating the second-most wins in program history. The Mustangs finished tied for third in the American Athletic Conference (12-6) and totaled four wins over ranked teams. The squad went 18-1 at home, including 12-1 in the renovated Moody Coliseum, while setting a new SMU single-season attendance record that included nine sellouts.
