Oklahoma State Adds Commitment from Former Michigan State Defensive Tackle

Published

The rich just got a whole lot richer. Joe Bob Clements defensive line group added another big dog to the mix on Tuesday evening, adding a commitment from junior college defensive tackle prospect Enoch Smith Jr., of Butler County Community College.

He is a former four-star prospect, who signed with Michigan State in the class of 2014. However, he elected to transfer after their 2015 season that ended in a loss in the college football playoff. He spent a season at Butler County Community College, and will be eligible for OSU immediately in 2017.

Smith is originally from Chicago, Ill., and at 6-foot-2, 265-pounds, is likely to compete for time in what may be the most loaded position group for OSU.

The Cowboys lose two-year starter Mote Maile this season due to expiration of eligibility, and who knows, Vincent Taylor could bolt for the NFL if he gets a favorable draft grade. That leaves the option for him to rotate in with the likes of DeQuinton Osborne, Darrion Daniels. They are also bringing in stud high school senior Brendon Evers, and junior college defensive tackle Ioane Leilua.

The highlights are from high school (which he is now two years removed from), but this gives a pretty good insight into what OSU fans have to look forward to. Explosive, powerful interior lineman who was agile enough to line at on the end but has the frame to stuff the gaps in run coverage.
