As expected, Gadsden City (Ala.) tight end/defensive end Darrell Smith made his official visit to Clemson this weekend.

As expected, he was offered a scholarship by the Clemson coaching staff.

However, he has yet to publicly verbally commit to the Tigers.

Smith, who is teammates with five-star cornerback Dre Kirkpatrick, as well as four-star wide receiver Kendall Kelly, said three will collectively announce their decision on Feb. 4 in a press conference at their high school.

"We are all going to announce our decision on signing day," Smith said. "Right now it's all even. I like Troy and I like Clemson. I'll sit down tonight and think about it."

The press conference is currently set for around 2:45 Eastern Wednesday.

Smith spoke more about his visit to Tigertown, including his host, Antoine McClain.

"It was alright," he said. "I liked the facilities and the dorm rooms. The players are real nice so that was good.

"I've know him [Antone] for a long time so that was nice. The coaches were nice too."

Smith is currently ranked as the No. 59 tight end in the country according to Scout.com.

"It was good to get [an offer]," Smith added. "Now I just have a lot to think about."
