The Skinny

Top Stories

Smith wound up being the first commit in the class and it really did not take a lot of time. He was offered in the summer of 2013 and never really looked elsewhere.

He now will reunite with Jalen Watts-Jackson, his former secondary teammate at OLSM.

He was a player MSU locked in on early because he fits perfectly with what the Spartans seek to do at corner. He excels in press-man coverage and makes good plays on the ball in the air.

With competition at cornerback this fall, he figures to get a look with everyone else coming in.
