LOI Day Surprise! Smith picks Idaho
In the end he made his choice, and that choice would be the University of 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.
From his bio released this afternoon in an Official Press Release from the University of Idaho Sports Information office:
