Louisiana has been struck hard by flooding, which means there will be a delay in Devonta Smith’s announcement.
Smith’s school, Amite (La.) High School, was cancelled for Monday due to flooding across Tangipahoa Parish. As a result, Smith’s 6:30 p.m. CT announcement has been postponed and it has not yet been rescheduled.
“Devonta is moving it because of the flooding in our area,” his coach, Zephaniah Powell told SEC Country on Sunday evening. “He is more concerned with that than anything.”
Smith, a 4-star wide receiver, is choosing from LSU, Alabama and Miami.
Alabama and Miami are considered to be the major landing spots for the 6-foot-1, 160-pound talent. LSU remains in the mix, though the in-state power is seemingly a distant third behind the defending national champions and former Georgia coach Mark Richt’s Hurricanes. Smith, a one-time Bulldogs commit, is still very fond of the former SEC coach.
SEC Country will broadcast the announcement on Facebook Live whenever a new date is set. Afterward, we will provide all the latest on where Smith committed and hold a Facebook Live Q&A with the standout receiver.
