Late last week 2016 defensive end Rahshaun Smith found out that he had picked up an offer from another BCS title contender. Smith, out of Towson (Md.) Calvert Hall, also says two schools are in good standing with him heading into the season.
"I was actually down at Florida State a couple of weeks ago," said the 6-foot-2, 227-pound Smith. "They didn't tell me I got an offer when I was down there. I got the call from my coach telling me that Florida State offered and it was a great feeling.
"I toured the facilities and things like that," he said. "Coach Graham has been recruiting me since he was at Tennessee and now that he's at FSU. He always told me he would keep recruiting me.
"That was my first time on the campus," Smith said. "I've started looking into them since I got the offer, watching film and things like that. They've put a lot of guys in the NFL, which is a plus."
Two schools seem to have a slight early lead for Smith right now.
"Ohio State and Florida are sitting pretty good with me going into the season because I was just down there at Florida and I was recently out at Ohio State," he said. "The coaches show a lot of love. I'm still keeping all doors open and interested in every school."
Smith visited numerous schools this offseason but he does not know where he will be visiting next.
"My coach and I have been talking about games to see this year but we haven't decided on any yet," said Smith. "We are thinking about games at Maryland, Penn State and Rutgers, schools that are close by."
As many people know, one family member usually has final say before any decision is made.
"My mom wants to go to some games, maybe down at Florida," he said. "It's so early in the process that my mom hasn't really gotten too involved yet. She hasn't been on a visit yet but I'm definitely going to bring her on the visits next year."
Smith has about 15 offers right now for schools like Virginia Tech, Virginia, Ohio State, Florida, Penn State, Tennessee and many others.
