Sophomore Zach Smith is a top tight end prospect coming out of West Deptford, N.J.
The 6-foot-3, 196-pounder helped the school to a 12-0 record as they won the Group-II state championship. He went on to record 17 receptions for 329 yards and five touchdowns on offense. He added 27 tackles, four blocked passes and an interception returned for a touchdown in just six games on defense.
Smith was named first team all-conference tight end as a sophomore.
"He's going to be a big-time player if he continues to develop," West Deptford head coach Clyde Folsom said. "He's a very intelligent and athletic player. He made an incredible impact in the conference and you can tell he is still young.
"We expect him to be a great player as a junior and senior," he said. "He's already an outstanding blocker who learns quickly and has outstanding hands, he's a good one."
Since last August, Smith has already added 20 pounds despite playing basketball as well.
Smith will be heading to the Rivals.com Junior Day on March 26th and the Blue Chip Combine on May 2nd, both at Rutgers.
Penn State, Rutgers, Boston College, Syracuse and Virginia are a few of the schools who are already aware of Smith.
