TE Cannon Smith Profile
It was earlier this spring that the Crimson Tide offered the longtime Clemson commitment. After weighing the pros and cons of visiting Alabama, he's reached a decision.
"I am not going to take a visit to Alabama. I'm solid, 100 percent with Clemson. I'm just going to stick with that. I'm not going to take any other visits to any other college," Smith recently told CUTigers.
The Hammond School [Columbia] four-star visited Tigertown last month for the second session of the Dabo Swinney Football Camp.
"It was really exciting. I got to meet a lot of the guys and work with coach [Danny] Pearman, so it was really fun," Smith said.
Pearman helped Smith adjust a few different parts of his game.
"He helped me a lot with my footwork, my stance, how to run crisper routes. He just kind of helped me in a lot of general areas," Smith said.
It was also the first chance for Smith to workout in the new indoor practice facility.
"I had seen the indoor facility when I went up for junior day, but I never got to play in it. Playing in it was a whole new experience in itself," he said.
The No. 11 tight end in the class of 2014 also met a few of his future teammates.
"I got to meet Milan Richard, the other tight end. He's a really great guy. I was really happy to meet him and meet one of my future teammates," Smith said. "I also got to meet C.J. Fuller and Deshaun Watson."
He was impressed with Watson.
"It was unbelievable, because [Watson's] a big-time recruit," Smith said. "It just felt really connecting having all the prospect work together at a camp and seeing how our chemistry will be in college."
Smith finished his junior season with over 500 yards receiving and five touchdown catches.
As a sophomore, he had 20 catches for 387 yards and four touchdowns.
