LSU will bring in one of the state’s top prospects on Saturday for a key unofficial visit.
Eddie Smith, a 3-star cornerback from Salmen (La.) High School, will make his second-ever stop in Baton Rouge this weekend.
Smith, a 6-foot, 172-pound 2018 recruit, has seen his recruitment balloon this spring since exploding onto the scene with the Louisiana Bootleggers, the state’s premier 7-on-7 program.
The in-state recruit visited LSU for the team’s “Boys From The Boot” event in mid-February. This will be Smith’s second trip back this spring.
Smith has procured double-digit overtures in the first few months of the 2018 recruiting cycle, with Memphis, Oregon State, Louisiana Tech and Tulane some of his notable offers. He remains on LSU and defensive back coach Corey Raymond’s radar.
The Tigers hold commitments from four defensive backs in their 2018 recruiting class, including 4-star corner Kelvin Joseph, 4-star safeties Nadab Joseph and Caden Sterns, and 3-star nickel Ar’Darius Washington. The team recently hosted priority targets Pat Surtain Jr. and Tyson Campbell, who visited last weekend from South Florida.
Surtain and Campbell are favoring LSU at this juncture in their recruitment.
Smith remains on the team’s radar and could eventually land an offer depending on how this class shapes up. Without question, he is one of the budding prospects from Louisiana with size, speed and versatility at the cornerback position.
