Three-star running back David Smith (Chicago, Ill./Bremen) landed an offer from Oklahoma on Wednesday night. Smith said he received the offer from running backs coach Cale Gundy.

"Coach Gundy came into my home and explained to my mom and grandmother why Oklahoma is such a great place and asked if I was interested in coming in on a visit next week, because the offer is on the table," Smith said. "I like (Oklahoma) a lot."

Smith is scheduled to take an official visit to Oklahoma on Jan. 13.

The 6-foot, 197-pounder is also considering Boston College, Cincinnati and Purdue, and has taken an official visit to each school. He also took an official visit to West Virginia.
