Clemson celebrates national championship victory
Smith, a Baltimore native, excelled at the Bradenton high school football power to wrap up his prep career, before early enrolling at Clemson in 2016.
He was ranked the No. 3 inside linebacker in the nation coming out of high school and was a consensus 4-star prospect.
247 Sports reported Smith was expected to vie for a starting job this season and placed a “‘do not contact’ tag attached to his portal entry, which implies he’s requesting that other schools do not contact him.”
A rising redshirt junior, Smith graduated from Clemson in May, according to 247 Sports, which makes him eligible to play immediately as a graduate transfer.
Smith played in 13 games in 2017 and 15 games in 2018. Last season saw Smith tallying 16 tackles with 2.5 tackles for a loss.
