Junior profile: Darius Smith
Euclid, Ohio, junior defensive end Darius Smith is the younger brother of Ohio State's Brandon Smith. Darius has a chance to be recruited by the Big Ten schools as well.
The 6-foot-3 and 195 pound Darius Smith made 36 solo tackles and had 26 assists from his defensive end spot during his junior season. Four of his tackles were for losses including two quarterback sacks, and he had four quarterback hurries.
"This kid can run, and he's going to get bigger," Euclid coach Mike Rezzolla said. "He'll probably be a defensive end in college.
"I think he will be somewhere between a MAC and Big Ten player."
