According to Smith's high school coach Ty Baumgardner, the Thursday unofficial visit ultimately led to the quick commitment.
"He went down for an unofficial and just really fell in love with coach Brownell and everything he had to say and his personality and the direction he has that program headed," Baumgardner said.
"Clemson was high on his list from the get go and just going down there and being around those guys and seeing everything first hand and having a chance to sit down with coach Brownell just blew him and his mother away," Baumgardner said.
"He has a really good relationship with coach Grant and he feel in love with the campus and everything." He added.
Smith went for 12 points a game as a junior at Olympic.
