LB LaChaston Smith Profile
It was the third-time Smith's tripped to Clemson. His previous two stops were for a football game and again for a basketball game.
"It was a really good experience. I really enjoyed Clemson while I was there," Smith said in a recent interview with CUTigers.
He added, "It was a good experience, bringing up education. They continue to rise as a school and an athletic program."
While in town, Smith met with Clemson's newest addition to the coaching staff, defensive coordinator Brent Venables.
"We sat down at the basketball game and talked," Smith said.
It was the first-time the 6-foot, 220-pound linebacker met Venables.
"He knows what he's talking about. You can tell he's got a bunch of college experience, not as a coach, but also as a player," Smith said. "We were basically just getting to know each other."
East Carolina, Florida, North Carolina, Virginia, and Wake Forest have offered. Clemson, South Carolina and Tennessee are also expressing interest.
Smith has no favorites.
At middle linebacker last season, he finished with 82 tackles [13 for loss], a sack, five forced fumbles, two interceptions returned for touchdowns and two pass breakups.
As a sophomore, Smith had 99 tackles and seven sacks as a defensive end.
Also a basketball player, he is averaging over 24 points per game at South Iredell.
