2014 safety Emmanuel Smith received offers from the Vanderbilt Commodores and the Oregon State Beavers on February 21st. This brings his total number of offers to five.

The other teams that have offered at him are the Tennessee Volunteers, the Louisville Cardinals, and the Memphis Tigers.

Out of his five offers, it is projected that Smith is heavily interested in Tennessee and Vanderbilt.

Smith is a 6’2″, 200 pound defensive back from Murfreesboro, Tennessee. He is currently a junior at Oakland High School.

The Oakland Patriots made it to the Class 6A Tennessee State Playoffs. They lost to Siegel High School, 13-58, in their first round game.

As a junior in 2012, Smith recorded 77 tackles, one interception, and four forced fumbles.

The three-star recruit is currently ranked 26th in the state of Tennessee and 61st among safeties by 247Sports.

Smith is scheduled to visited the Vanderbilt Commodores on March 23rd for the school’s junior day.

      Thanks for the correction. Sometimes when I write team names mesh together. Thanks again though!

    Oregon State is the best of all these offers. He can play in a Rose Bowl with the Beavers who are on the rise. Tennessee and Vanderbilt aren’t going anywhere.

      I agree that Oregon State would be a nice place compared to Tennessee and Vanderbilt, but Vandy would be a close second for me. I feel like we could see teams like Vandy do what Ole Miss did this past signing day.
