Elite WR prospect Devonta Smith includes Nebraska among top 4 schools, sets decision date
Nebraska is still in the final mix for one of the nation’s top prospects as he nears a decision.
Devonta Smith, a 4-star wide receiver from Amite (La.) High School, discussed his recruitment with nola.com’s James Smith and revealed which four schools are still in the hunt and when he plans to announce his decision.
“I’m basically down to four schools,” Smith told nola.com. “Mississippi State, Miami, Nebraska and Alabama. All of those schools have a lot to offer me, and have done a good job recruiting me.”
Smith, who decommitted from Georgia in January, received an offer from Nebraska on April 22 and the Huskers have been near the top of the list for the receiver ever since.
Speaking with nola.com, Smith said that he plans to announce his commitment on August 15 and shed some light on why he is so high on Nebraska.
“Coach (Keith) Williams is one of the best there is in the business,” Smith said. “He’s a great position coach and I feel like I could be that missing piece to help them get on top again.”
The 6-foot-1, 170-pound receiver is rated the No. 10 prospect at his position for the Class of 2017 and the No. 2 prospect in the state of Louisiana.
