Brandon Smith, a wide receiver out of Mississippi, will officially be playing his college football for The University of Iowa after signing his National Letter of Intent today. He didn’t have a lot of great offers, with most of them coming from Group of Five schools, but there was reported interest from some SEC schools, including Alabama.
Smith committed to the Hawkeyes this past summer when just about everyone was committing to Iowa. All the cool kids were doing it! Then all the cool kids decommitted and Brandon Smith decided to stay put. That’s pretty good for the Hawkeyes, who will appreciate a wide receiver with decent size. He also showcases some good speed, which you can see in his highlight video.
Most importantly, though, it’s another Smith, which means that’s one less player name for Gary Dolphin to learn going into future seasons.
