Buechele will be immediately eligible to play for SMU as a graduate of Texas.
He was effective as a freshman, throwing for 2,958 yards, 21 touchdowns and 11 interceptions on 60.4% completion. After his sophomore year, he battled injury and lost playing time to now Texas starter Sam Ehlinger.
In his career, he passed for 4,636 yards, 30 touchdowns and 16 interceptions on 62.2% completion.
Buechele will join a 5-7 SMU team, who just lost their starting quarterback from last season, Ben Hicks, to Arkansas as a graduate transfer.
