National Signing Day 2020: Rickey Smith Signs NLI!

A hybrid safety/outside linebacker.

NCAA Football: Iowa at Purdue Trevor Ruszkowski-USA TODAY Sports

Name: Rickey Smith

Position & Size: Outside Linebacker/Safety, 6-1, 200 Pounds

Hometown: Orlando, Florida

Ranking: 3*

Other Offers: Liberty, Marshall, The U, FAU, Missouri, UCF, USF, West Virginia

Thoughts:

I believe Rickey was recruited to play the hybrid OLB/Safety position that we saw Jalen Graham playing this season.

At 6-1, 200 pounds, he definitely will need a year to get stronger in the weight room before he plays OLB in the B1G.

He does have a high ceiling through, he runs and tackles a lot like Jalen Graham and I see him as a similar player to Jalen.
