Utah football has announced the signing of Alfred Smith, a composite 24/7 three-star wide receiver from Destrehan High School in Destrehan, La. The 5-foot-9, 184 pound wide receiver was high school teammates with current Utah quarterback Donovan Isom. Smith was committed to Utah then decommitted shortly after former offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Brian Johnson left for Mississippi State. Smith was committed to Arizona State before decommitting and ultimately choosing Utah. Smith is a tough receiver who fights for yards and is shifty in the open field. He will fill in nicely as a slot receiver for Utah.
After Isom graduated, Destrehan High School focused more on running the football, so Smith's numbers were not great his senior year. He posted 20 receptions for 206 yards with one touchdown. Smith will give Isom a familiar face to throw the ball to when both become starters for Utah.
Smith chose Utah over a host of other offers including Arizona State, Duke, Florida, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and West Virginia.
