5-star defensive back Saivion Smith from IMG Academy has committed to LSU over Clemson, Florida State, Florida and Virginia Tech on ESPNU's On the Trail Show on Tuesday afternoon. Smith said on the show that he is "100% committed to LSU."

Smith had wonderful things to say about Clemson and the coaching staff on the broadcast despite not committing to the program.

"I will start off with Clemson. That was my first Division 1 offer and I love Clemson with all my heart. Me and coach (Tony) Elliott have a great relationship - he is more of a life coach than a football coach. I had a great conversation with Coach Dabo Swinney when I was up there not too long ago and it's just a great place."

Smith is a teammate of 4-star Clemson wide receiver commit T.J. Chase.

He and his family visited LSU over the weekend and had a great unofficial visit by all accounts. He is being recruited by LSU coaches Corey Raymond and Ed Orgeron. He plans to take all five of his official visits during his senior season so this recruitment might not be finalized.

Clemson offered on 5/7/14 and it was his first college offer. He also has offers from Baylor, Florida, Florida State, Iowa State, Kentucky, Louisville, LSU, Maryland, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Penn State, Tennessee, UCF, UCLA,Virginia Tech and others.

Smith visited Clemson for the impressive 35-17 win over the Gamecocks, visited Clemson for the 2014 Dabo Swinney football camp, and visited with his IMG teammates at Clemson's Elite Junior Day back in late January.

He plans to major in Sports Management in college.

His god-brother is Florida defensive end Dante Fowler Jr. who will probably land in the first round of the 2015 NFL draft.
