Versatile 3-Star Cornerback Eddie Smith Commits to TCU

Eddie Smith, the No. 3 cornerback in Louisiana, committed Friday evening to the TCU Horned Frogs.

Slidell (La.) Salmen 2018 three-star cornerback Eddie Smith enjoyed a huge spring as he racked up more than two dozen offers, including double-digit Power Five conference offers.

On Friday evening, the 6-foot, 172-pounder chose TCU over all of the rest.

Smith announced his commitment to the Horned Frogs via Twitter:

TCU was in Smith's top 10, which also included Louisville, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Oregon State, Tennessee, Texas Tech, Utah, and Virginia Tech.

In addition to those offers, Smith has picked up offers from Georgia, Arkansas State, Ball State, Colorado State, Louisiana Tech, Marshall, Memphis, North Texas, San Diego State, Southern Miss, Troy, Tulane, UAB, ULL, ULM, UMass, and UTSA.

Scout ranks Smith as the No. 3 cornerback in the state of Louisiana's 2018 recruiting class.

As a junior, Smith played both sides of the ball for Salmen High School, where he caught 11 passes for 275 yards and five touchdowns, while recording 33 tackles, one tackle for loss, two INT's, and one defensive TD.

Smith is the 2018 fourth prospect from the state of Louisiana to commit to TCU.

Smith's commitment comes a day after TCU landed Logansport High School three-star receiver John Stephens Jr., and eight days after the Frogs nabbed Monroe Richwood safety HiDari Ceasar

On May 31, Bossier City Parkway four-star quarterback Justin Rogers started the Louisiana-centric trend. Rogers is the highest-rated of the four and the Frogs' top-ranked pledge for the 2018 class at No. 110 overall in the Scout 300.

Smith is the fourth defensive back commitment for TCU, joining Ceasar, three-star cornerback Trevon Moehrig-Woodard, and four-star national top 100 safety prospect Atanza Vongor.
