Committed to Michigan state university today !!— Tyson Smith (@4Tyson_TD) December 5, 2013
Smith is teammates with 2014 defensive back commit Jalen Watts-Jackson.
The 5-foot-11, 170-pound corner picked up an offer from MSU following his performance at the Spartans' elite one-day camp this summer. The Spartans offered Smith and Watts-Jackson at the same time and the pair had talked at that time about playing together in college.
Michigan State was his lone offer, but he had interest from much of the Big Ten and was hearing from Alabama, USC and UCLA among others.
With Curtis Blackwell as MSU's recruiting coordinator, MSU is looking for a big splash with the top in-state prospects in 2015, and Smith, along with quarterback Jayru Campbell, are a good start.
At 5-foot-11, that's a decent height for a DB. In the highlights below, he does a good job finding the ball in the air.
