TE Cannon Smith Profile
The offer from Nick Saban was No. 2 for the 6-foot-5, 230-pound prospect from The Hammond School in Columbia.
Clemson, of course, was the first.
"I was really, really humbled by it. I'm very fortunate to have a school like Alabama show interest," Smith told CUTigers in a recent interview. "But I'm still committed to Clemson."
Smith is the son of Clemson Board of Trustee Bill Smith, who also played on the school's 1981 National Championship team.
It's still up for debate if the younger Smith will take a closer look at Alabama.
"My family and I are still talking it over, about wanting to go visit. But I just don't know yet," Smith said.
He will visit Clemson this Saturday for Junior Day.
LSU, Notre Dame, Nebraska, Florida State, Georgia and others are expressing interest.
Smith finished his junior season with over 500 yards receiving and five touchdown catches.
As a sophomore, Smith had 20 catches for 387 yards and four touchdowns.
Scout.com lists Smith as the No. 8 ranked tight end in the class of 2014.
