"I just committed to Mississippi State," said Smith Friday night.

"I just liked the atmosphere up there and out of all the schools that were recruiting me, they were recruiting me the hardest."

Deville claims offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Kentucky, Marquette, Memphis, Ole Miss and West Virginia among others.

Smith is a part of one of the top in state classes the state of Mississippi has ever seen. His commitment could prove to be extremely valuable to the Bulldogs as they look for the heir apparent to point guard Dee Bost.

"I like the coaches at Mississippi State a lot," said Smith. "I just feel real comfortable with them."
