Tyson Smith – Orchard Lake St Mary’s Cornerback
Height, weight: 5-foot-11, 170 pounds
Commitment Date: December 4, 2013
Why Michigan State: “I like the coaching staff, the facilities, the school; everybody was very nice when I went up there, and they have the number one defense in the country."
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.
