Smith headlines a group of talented 2016 Clemson commits

Clemson 2016 linebacker commit Rahshaun Smith announced his four official college visits which include Auburn (Nov. 14), Clemson, LSU (Oct. 17) and Miami according to ESPN's Gerry Hamilton.

Smith might take a fifth official visit as Alabama and Kentucky are two schools in the running.

The 5-star linebacker recruit is solid to Clemson but wants to enjoy his college recruitment before the grind of being a college student.

"You know, right now where I’m at, I definitely plan to take my officials," Smith said to Hamilton. "But before I say that, I definitely can say that I’m solid with Clemson. I’m basically 99.9 percent with them, but the thing I’ve been hearing around is this thing is one time, so why not live it all out and get all you can out of it? Because when you get to college it starts over like freshman year of high school. I’m going to see all the things I can see."

ESPN's Gerry Hamilton asked if there was anything that could change his mind on his commitment to Clemson University.

"That’s maybe one of the hardest questions I have ever been asked. I love Clemson for Clemson. I don’t love Clemson for Coach [Brent] Venables, or Coach [Dabo] Swinney. I don’t love Clemson for just the facilities, the uniforms or just the success. I love Clemson for Clemson. You know, it’s a really small town, you can’t get in much trouble there, it’s just Clemson there and you will focus on what you need to get done. I can graduate there in three and a half years regardless of what I do. I can say that if Coach Venables was to leave, that could make me reconsider I guess."

As a junior, Smith had 111 tackles, ten tackles for loss, three sacks and two interceptions.

He has national offers from Alabama, Arkansas, Boston College, Clemson, Connecticut, Florida, Florida State, Georgia Tech, Indiana, Iowa, Kentucky, Maryland, Miami, Michigan, North Carolina, North Carolina State, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon, Oregon State, Penn State, Rutgers, South Carolina, Tennessee, USC, Virginia, Virginia Tech, Wake Forest, Wisconsin and others.
