From Bruce Feldman:

#Oregon transfer LB Isaac Slade-Matautia is going to #SMU. He's No. 31 on our Transfer Portal Top 100. Three years ago his old DC at Oregon, Jim Leavitt told me ISM reminded him of NaVorro Bowman who he coached w/ the 49ers> Leavitt is now SMU's DC

Unusual transfer to get a guy with mostly western states/PAC-12 connections. Coach Leavitt working to build his defense! Good to get an experienced guy who knows Leavitt's D.

I read somewhere (should have written down the source) that two years ago, Slade-Matautia was the only linebacker in the country with 60 or more tackles and 10 or more passes broken up.

Got it: on his bio page on the Oregon website.

According to OregonLive.com

A fourth-year junior, Slade-Matautia tied for the team lead with 45 tackles for the Ducks last season with 3.5 tackles for loss, a sack and five pass breakups. In 2019, he had 62 tackles, 6.5 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks and 11 pass breakups, tied for the most nationally among linebackers, in 2019. :shock:


Playing in Leavitt’s 3-4 defense as a freshman in 2018, Slade-Matautia had 20 tackles, with two for loss, over seven games before a broken collarbone ended his season.

He was the #2 overall recruit coming out of Hawaii (behind some kid named Tua :) ). Only natural explanation is that June put in a good word for us....

Leavitt, our new DC, was his coach at Oregon.

Can't wait to see this guy in the defense. He should be the on-field coach/tutor needed with a new system.

For what it's worth, he is not (or maybe not yet) listed on the SMU roster.
