Per Reports, Wes Smith commits to Nova Football

Villanova has landed another football recruit out of the Sunshine State, according to reports, with Wes Smith offering his verbal recently.

Villanova has a great connection at Ft. Lauderdale's University School, since head coach Roger Harriott was a former Villanova running back who transferred into the program after Boston University mothballed it's Yankee Conference program in the 1990s. Harriott briefly flirted with the college coaching ranks, and was almost Doug Marrone's running back coach at Syracuse a few years ago. Instead, he leads a program that has sent a two commitments to the Main Line in three years.

The first was big defensive lineman Pat Williams, who just finished his sophomore season at Villanova. Now, it seems that defensive back, Wesley Smith will join Williams in the Fall, according to Chad Wilson. Both major recruiting sites, Rivals and Scout, rate Smith as a two-star prospect and note offers from Georgia State (Sun Belt), Utah State (Mountain West) and Toledo (MAC) in addition to Villanova and other FCS programs.

Smith projects to play safety in college and would be a good fit in Villanova's 3-3-5 defensive alignment that utilizes three safeties in many situations. The 5-11, 170-pound high schooler runs the 40-yard dash in around 4.5 seconds, and has shown off a great ability on the blitz, as well as a high motor and intensity generally.

He is the third player to join Villanova's 2013 football class projected to play defensive back in college. The other two being Ralph "Trey" Johnson (Steinbrenner, FL) and Lorenzo Fertitta (Bishop Gorman, NV). The Wildcats have also landed Massachusetts wide receiver Lincoln Collins (BC High) and New York defensive lineman Thomas Plonski (Brooklyn Tech).
