Three-star Homestead (Fla.) High safety/outside linebacker Rashad Smith flipped from Florida Atlantic to Syracuse during an official visit in January. However, the Owls never stopped recruiting Smith and were able to get him to sign with them on National Signing Day.
Syracuse does have three other linebackers committed in the 2016 class and several young talented ones on the rister. Smith was a high ceiling prospect who needed time to add weight to his frame.
Regardless, Smith's flip puts the expected Syracuse class at 20.
