Watch List DB nabs Ohio State offer
By Brad Bournival
It’s becoming quite common for Ohio State -- a trip to Georgia nets another offer.
The latest came in the form of ESPN Watch List cornerback D.J. Smith (Marietta, Ga./Walton).
Smith becomes the 15th 2014 player from the Peach State to pick up an offer from the Buckeyes.
He’s also the 12th cornerback with an offer from Ohio State -- 11 of those cornerbacks are Watch List juniors.
This season, the 6-foot, 182-pound Smith made 40 tackles, two interceptions and recorded four pass breakups.
As a sophomore, Smith made 43 tackles and had two picks for the AAAAA state runner-up Raiders.
Smith has offers from Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Kentucky, Michigan State, Nebraska, South Carolina and Vanderbilt.
