I do love these programs who claim they don't have room for him. IMO, this kid will excell @ Carolina. He can start off @ DB & either stay at the position or grow into a safety or possibly a SPUR. I don't care-the kid is a flat player.

From Rivals. Vols are full at DB unless your name is Adoree Jackson due to him being able to be a two way player.

5. DB D.J. Smith, Marietta (Ga.) Walton
Rank: No. 123 overall, No. 7 cornerback
Status: With Tennessee's class nearly at capacity and full of defensive backs, it seems as if the long-time favorite Vols have cooled on the nation's No. 123 prospect. That leaves Clemson and South Carolina as the likely destination for the physical defensive back. South Carolina has made a big move over the past few weeks and will host Smith for an official visit the weekend of Jan. 17. An official visit to Clemson will likely follow so the two on-field rivals will face-off for one of the top remaining prospects in the Southeast. Clemson has some ground to make up with South Carolina the current hot option, but expect this one to come down to the end.

That is the way it goes some times. Some of the best players like to take their time, but schools don't want to wait for them. I think some schools are in love with the idea of getting a bunch of commitments right away because they need that as a recruiting tool and to keep their fans appeased.

This article is so wrong. Clemson was the long time leader for Smith, not UT. All the analysts and writers know that except for this guy apparently. Clemson may have burned their bridges when pulling their offer after visiting USC. It was USC who made up the ground.

You put 2 and 2 together. They pulled the offer when they thought they weren't going to get him, so they can use the spot on going after someone else. Clemson has "no room for him" because they decided he wasn't going there so they immediately designated his scholarship for someone else. You don't just pass on a DB of this caliber. He is the kind of DB that Bama likes to have playing for them. Bama may not have room for him, but Clemson and Tennessee would make it.

I actually do agree that this article isn't correct saying TN was the "longtime favorite".

But I do think we are full at DB (especially S which our coaches think DJ would play).

So anyway, good luck at getting him!

I know UT is full at that position. I was criticizing the writer. Sometimes a national writer doesn't know the whole recruiting history of a player when the writer is obviously trying figure out where the last good ones are going. If he hasn't followed the player from the beginning, he won't know the complete history.

I don't care if Clemson and UT are "full." Smith is a hell of a player, and their loss can be our gain. Really hope we land this guy.

This is the point, EV, it keeps happening over and over. Who had the Vols pegged as his favorite??? Now that its obvious he's going elsewhere, you "cool" on him.

Good grief.

From what I understand we were the favorite for maybe like a month early in the summer. Then Clemson, SC and others got involved and it evened out or even SC/Clemson took the lead.

Around that time we landed TKJr., Gaulden and Cortez McDowell. Since then I don't think we've been very active.

I think people writing articles like this are either 1 of two things.

1. Poor at their job and haven't done the research to know what the full story is

or what I think is much more likely

2. Desperate for hits on their website and will say anything to get people to view their articles.

Tennessee had to take the Berry boys, but I think Smith is better, and I think he would be better at CB.

When a school says they're full and don't have room for a kid like Smith, it either means he was never going there, and/or they can't judge talent and made mistakes by taking lesser players above him.

I have no idea whether he'll play CB, S or LB.....what I do know is that he can run, he can tackle well, and he will take your head off.....after that, it doesn't really matter. He and Darin Smalls will make a great pair of hitters.
