Davon Smart (RB/DB, 5'11"-190lbs, 4.5 forty) is one of the best players in Northern New Jersey. Danny Oquendo and he led the Hackensack Comets to the North Jersey, Section 1, Group 4 Championship game before falling to Ridgewood. Although he missed a number of games, Smart amassed nearly 1000 yards rushing.
On the weekend of December 10th, the Hackensack star visited Rutgers. He stated that he enjoyed the visit, meeting the other recruits, and the Rutgers players. Like many New Jersey players, Smart has been on the Rutgers campus numerous times and is very familiar with the Rutgers campus and facilities. Even so, he rated the visit a 7 out of 10 and stated it could have been higher if he was not so familiar with the university. He stated that many of the Florida players who were not familiar with the facilities were impressed. He stated that two players committed but he could not recalled the names.
Smart was hosted by his former teammate Jean Beljour and hung out with many of the recruits.
It might be some time before he commits. He is looking to schedule a visit to Connecticut and was planning a visit to Pittsburgh until the coaching change at the University. As a result, Smart will be juggling his plans to schedule other schools before making a decision. However, a key factor in his decision will be his relationship with the coaches and players. One thing that will not be a factor is which position he plays. Although he would like to play RB, he is willing to play any position that gets him on the field the fastest.
