"I wanted to tell you I was offered by Ohio State today," Smith reported. "I received an e-mail from (assistant coach) Darrell Hazell, telling me I had the offer. I couldn't be happier, to tell you the truth, because Ohio State has always been my favorite school."
"I need to talk this over with my parents, and give it some thought," he continued. "When Coach Hazell e-mailed me back, he asked me if I was a Buckeye, and I answered that I was, and I would give him an answer later today, or tomorrow."
Ohio State has 14 commitments in the 2011 recruiting class, including one wide receiver, Evan Spencer, of Vernon Hills, Illinois.
