  • He continues to make good strides and with continued progress on the practice field and in the weight room, which should allow him to move into the cornerback rotation this fall.
  • The former H.D. Woodson High School standout wears No. 12, just as his childhood friend and former Nittany Lion cornerback Stephon Morris.
  • Smith was born and grew up in our nation’s capital, Washington, D.C.
