One of the earliest commits to Arizona State's 2016 recruiting class made his June 17 committment come to fruition today as Jeremy Smith signed his letter of intent to play for the Sun Devils.

Smith, listed as a three-star recruit by all major recruiting services, chose ASU over Oklahoma, Michigan State and others thanks to the recruiting pitch given to him by Mike Norvell. Norvell left, but Smith stayed true to his committment and inked it Wednesday.
Smith primarily played quarterback throughout his high school career, but also spent time at receiver and will come to Tempe looking to establish himself as a receiving threat for ASU's emergent starting quarterback.
Hailing from Texas, a state stocked with blue-chip recruits, Smith chose to spurn the in-state offers from the Texas Longhorns and Texas A&M Aggies to join native Texan Todd Graham in the desert.
Here's a highlight tape of Smith at receiver. Lanky but with solid size at 6-foot-2, 185 pounds, Smith shows agility in tight spaces and solid ball skills, a trait that bodes well for a player who spent most of his time in high school throwing the ball.
