DE Rahshaun Smith (6-3 230) of Baltimore is a national recruit with whom Clemson has become very chummy. Smith attends IMG Academy in Bradenton, FL. He camped at Clemson last summer, went to a game last season, and plans to attend the Tigers’ junior day this Saturday.
Smith has nearly 40 offers and said he does not plan to narrow his list anytime soon. Clemson and USC are among those offers.
‘I love Clemson,” Smith said. “They sit well with me right now. I have a great impression of them. When I went down there it was everything I thought it would be.” Smith visited last season for the Syracuse game.”
Smith said he has similar feelings right now for Florida, Oklahoma and Tennessee.
As for the Gamecocks, Smith is very good friends with USC signee Ernest Hawkins and he has talked with Gamecock recruiter GA Mangus. That was about a month and a half ago and he said he hasn’t heard back from the Gamecocks. He’s not sure if USC will figure in his long term plans.
Smith said there’s a possibility of a decision from him in the spring or summer but he’s not locked in to any timetable at this point.
