Clemson 2015 linebacker commit Chad SmithChad Smith Linebacker 6-4, 215 Sterling, VA ESPN: View Full Profile talked to LoudounTimes.com about some of the main reasons that he committed to the Tigers.
"It just felt like home," Smith said about Clemson, a major public university in a small South Carolina town of the same name.
"It just fit me. The coaching staff fit me," Smith continued. "I'd say [defensive coordinator and linebackers coach] Brent Venables' personality is a match with mine. He's intense and passionate about football but very kind off the field, and those are qualities that I think I have too."
Smith will enroll early at Clemson in January 2015.
