The 6-foot-3, 300-pound lineman, who is ranked the seventh best at his position by 247Sports Composite, picked Michigan over Ohio State, Michigan State, Alabama, Penn State, Notre Dame, and Georgia, among others. “I like Michigan’s tradition, the way they want their players to carry themselves,” Smith said in a May 2 interview with The Detroit News. “Of course, I like their new weight room, like their D-line coach (Greg) Mattison, too.” The Wolverines recorded quite recruiting haul during the weekend, receiving verbal commitments from three-star TE Erick All and four-star RB Zach Charbonnet. UM’s 2019 recruiting class has 14 commitments.
