Thursday evening, CJ Smith gave his verbal pledge to come to Minnesota as part of the 2018 recruiting class. What do we know about the latest Gopher commit? Not a ton as this name has not been on the radar until very recently. Let us get to know Smith a little bit.
Getting to know CJ Smith
Height: 6’ 1”
Weight: 175 lbs
Other Offers: Mississippi State (though unsure if it was commitable) and then a host of mid-major offers.
- Formerly committed to Georgia Southern.
- Evaluated as a 3-star recruit, Smith is currently the 4th defensive back commit in the 2018 class.
- Evaluation of his senior season is really seeing Smith garner attention from a number of larger schools. Fleck and staff has mad him a priority and gained his verbal commitment.
- His Fletcher High School team is currently 6-1 with a huge game against Columbia tonight (10/20).
- Personally I love 6’1” corners, assuming they have speed to go with it.
