COMMIT ALERT: Smith Makes It Official

February 23, 2019

Ahoskie (NC) Hertford County defensive tackle Jaylen Smith just verbally committed to NC State after attending the Wolfpack’s Junior Day.

He confirmed the commitment with Inside Pack Sports.

As a junior Smith tallied 20 tackles, three tackles for loss, and an interception in an injury-shortened season. For fans unfamiliar, Smith gave Inside Pack Sports a scouting report on where he thinks his game is right now.

“I think I’m good getting into the backfield and I love to bull rush,” Smith said. “I know I still need to work on my hands and improve my feet. I know that’s not up to par with where I want to be.”

The Pack wasted no time making Smith a major priority for the class of 2020, and he is impressed with the Wolfpack.

“It feel like home at State when I go up there. They’ve had success with their defensive linemen. I like the surroundings and the environment at State. Coach Patrick is the coach recruiting me. I like that he’s chill and the way that we talk to each other.”

Smith is NC State’s third commitment in the 2020 class and the Wolfpack’s first defensive verbal.  The 6-foot-3, 275-pounder projects to be a defensive tackle on the next level.

Inside Pack Sports will have more from Smith on his decision in the near future so stay tuned!
