A product of Westlake High, two of his best friends -- Eleanor Roosevelt's Stephon Morris and Derrick Thomas -- are already committed to the Nittany Lions. And Smith has said from the start that PSU is one of his favorites.
Smith was on hand for Penn State's 38-24 win over Illinois at Beaver Stadium Saturday night, witnessing a rousing win before a jam-packed White House throng. Was it enough to push him over the edge?
It was a great atmosphere, Smith said. Everyone was trying to get me to commit, the fans and everything. [Penn State] played really well and it was great.
I didn't commit, though, he added. I am going to sit down with my coach to see who else I want to visit so I can make my decision.
Smith did not mention other schools he might check out.
