CB D.J. Smith Profile
The Walton High School [Marietta, Ga.] junior recently spoke with CUTigers about the trip, which was his first visit to Tigertown.
"It went well. I saw and met some of the coaches. I saw some new things around the campus. I had a good time," Smith said. "The most that I got out of that -- if I can't make it in football I can come out with an education at Clemson. It's a win-win situation."
During the visit, Smith spoke with head coach Dabo Swinney, defensive coordinator Brent Venables and defensive backs coach Mike Reed.
What was the message from Swinney?
"He was just saying that he wanted me to play up there and that they wanted me. It was just small talk just about family and stuff, nothing real big."
Tennessee hosted Smith for a visit last weekend. He'll head to either Florida State or North Carolina next month.
With offers also from Florida, Georgia, Ole Miss, Nebraska, Ohio State and South Carolina, Smith has no favorites.
"I'm just enjoying the recruiting process," he said. "I'm not really thinking too far ahead. I'm just enjoying it."
Several factors will be considered as he moves through the process.
"Mostly playing time," he said. "Then, academics afterwards."
Smith plans to wait until signing day before making a decision.
As a junior, he had 50 tackles, three interceptions and five pass breakups. On the offensive side of the ball Smith rushed for 450 yards and five touchdowns and had over 400 receiving yards with five touchdowns.
