Donte Whitner, Vonn Bell, Christian Bryant
Physical and fast, he is known as a hitter but impressed everybody with his ability to cover at the Army All-American Bowl. According to John McCallister, he closes extremely well and finishes his tackles.
Smith should be able to help out immediately on special teams, and will likely battle for a spot right away on the defensive two-deep. He did not enroll early, so he will have to make up quite a bit of ground when he does finally arrive.
