Smith visited NU this weekend & was impressed enough to pick the Big Red. He becomes the first known commit of the Scott Frost era at Nebraska.
The 6'3" 190 pound Smith is from West Palm Beach, Florida & picked Nebraska over Oklahoma, Florida & Michigan among many other offers.
New Nebraska running backs coach Ryan Held was happy to celebrate the news late Sunday afternoon on Twitter.
