LOI Day Surprise! Smith picks Idaho

Senior honors for Smith were extensive this fall, and included being named a First Team All-Sunrise Region Class 4A selection at defensive end, and a Second Team tightend selection. He was also named a First Team All-Northeast Division selection at both DE and TE. To top it off he was named a Review Journal Nevada Class 4A Second Team All-State selection at Defensive End. He came into his senior season ranked the No. 13 prospect in the state of Nevada.
As would be expected, statistically Smith was solid. As a junior he recorded 63 tackles and 9 sacks. He followed that performance up this year with 52 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, and 8 sacks.
As with ALL of the signees in this class, he will be a crucial part of the rebuilding process at Idaho, and will likely get a solid shot at early playing time.
