Saivion Smith back on the team at IMG

Five-star LSU commit Saivion Smith has returned to the IMG Academy football team.

LSU commit Saivion Smith is back on the team at the IMG Academy.

His father confirmed the news to TSD on Monday. The five-star corner did not start practicing at IMG when they opened preseason camp. He was also not in attendance for the school's media day last week.

According to his father, Smith had fallen off pace with his coursework and had to complete some online classes before getting allowed back on the team. All is clear now though, and Smith is expected to be on the practice field Tuesday morning.

Smith, ranked as the No. 1 corner in the country, has been committed to LSU since February. He's also in line to be an early enrollee at LSU next spring.

That would make two straight years LSU had a five-star corner on campus before National Signing Day. The Tigers landed Kevin Toliver in the 2015 class, and he was with the team for spring practices earlier this year.

Smith could be the next, and he'll be back with the IMG Academy for his senior season.
