A source in the world of football agents and with knowledge within the NFLPA told us Friday morning USC CB Cam Smith signed on November 26th with agents Zac Hiller & Matthew Leist of the agency Loyalty Above All, thus ending his college career.
Smith is projected as a first-round pick by the vast majority of NFL Draft analysts.
A USC spokesman would not confirm the information saying head coach Shane Beamer will meet with the media Sunday at 5:00 PM after the bowl announcement.
