Smith to take trips?

Nebraska was all over Florida last year recruiting, but one of the areas that the coaching staff hit the hardest was Jacksonville. The Cornhusker staff is trying to do it again and recently offered this standout linebacker.

Earlier this week, Andre Smith picked up an offer from Nebraska. The 6-foot-0 and 220-pound linebacker from Jacksonville (Flor.) has been committed to North Carolina since October, but still the offers pour in.

The 2015 U.S. Army All-American jumped in the Tarheel class, solidified it with a visit and now might make trips. Over social media, Smith verified that he would take other trips and he said that Nebraska might be one of the schools he looks most closely at.

"Yes sir, I will visit other schools," Smith said. "I think it would be a different environment at Nebraska. I have no idea when I would visit."

In a previous interview, Smith talked about feedback that he had received from schools about where they saw him at the next level. He has been told that he is versatile enough to play all three of the linebacker positions at the next level, but still he is working had at being better.

"I'm becoming more versatile. They put me off the edge. I'm just trying to get to the quarterback, and I've worked on that. Before, I was horrible at it, now I can actually go out there and be productive," he said.

Smith finished his junior year with 101 total tackles, two interceptions and 6.5 sacks.
