#29 Tyson Smith
The potential is there for Smith to be a really great player as he continues to build his game. Listed as the back-up to Darian Hicks, Smith could push Hicks for the top spot and push the senior to the side.
Played in seven games as a true freshman showing signs of being a player to watch in the Spartans secondary in the years to come.
WHY HE MADE THE COUNTDOWN
Last season was no fluke as Smith has the tools to become a really good player in the next few seasons. Spartan Digest fully expects Smith to push Hicks for reps and maybe even a starting job. If Hicks struggles at the field cornerback spot, look for the Spartans to turn to Smith quickly.
