Texas-based tight end Blake Smith has offers from every corner of the country as well as several top SEC programs. He’s now made his commitment decision for 2020 but won’t be traveling too far from home.
Taking to Twitter on Sunday, Smith announced that he was committing to Texas A&M. The announcement comes just a few days after he made an official visit to the school.
All Glory To God, I’m an Aggie!!
247Sports rates Smith as a three-star prospect and the No. 753 overall prospect in the country. He is the No. 25 tight end in the country, and the No. 98 prospect from the state of Texas.
This past year he earned all-district honors at Southlake Carroll High School.
