DE Smith gives nod to South Florida

Defensive end Brad Smith (Tampa, Fla./Jesuit) was offered by South Florida over the weekend, and the 6-foot-3, 220-pound senior wasted no time in becoming the Bulls' 16th commitment.

South Florida has established a pipeline with Jesuit in this recruiting class, as Smith joins teammates Robby Garcia and Cameron Ruff, both projected offensive linemen, as verbal commitments to the Bulls.

Other offers for Smith included Boston College, Duke and Air Force. Smith was a standout performer on Jesuit's defense as a junior with 55 tackles, 12 sacks, two fumble recoveries and a safety.
