OL David Smith
6-6, 280, 5.0
Greenville High School
Greenville, South Carolina
Greenville offensive lineman David Smith verbally committed to the Clemson Tigers Monday evening, CUTigers.com has learned.
Smith, who's verbal commitment to Clemson has been expected for quite some time, is the fifth verbal commitment for the Tigers in the 2007 recruiting class.
CUTigers first reported on Smith on Nov. 30, 2005. He said at the time, "Clemson is my only offer at this point. They actually offered me on November 12. Coach Blackwell is recruiting me."
Smith also said, "I actually grew up rooting for Clemson."
Smith is currently ranked as the No. 8 prospect in the state of South Carolina and also the top-ranked offensive lineman for the 2007 recruiting class.
Smith chose the Tigers over interest from Florida State, South Carolina, Kentucky, North Carolina and others.
The Tigers also have verbal commitments for the 2007 recruiting class from 5-star QB Willy Korn (Byrnes), WR Xavier Dye (Greenwood), OL Wilson Norris (Pickens) and DT Jarvis Jenkins (Daniel).
All five of Clemson's verbal commitments for the 2007 recruiting class are currently ranked among Scout.com's Top 15 players in South Carolina. QB Willy Korn is ranked as the top player in the state, and also as the No. 2 quarterback in the country.
Smith's commitment gives the Tigers two offensive line prospects already on board for the 2007 class. After signing just two offensive linemen this year, Clemson will likely take up to five offensive linemen before National Signing Day next February.
