Scout's Take: S C.J. Smith to Nebraska

New Nebraska head coach Scott Frost landed his first ESPN 300 verbal -- safety C.J. Smith. Below, see why this Sunshine State prospect is a great start for Frost in Lincoln:

What he brings: Smith is a long, explosive prospect who can be a ball-hawking safety. He needs to continue to develop his frame, add more mass and improve functional strength, but he possesses good height and length with physical upside. A fluid athlete with speed who reacts quickly, he can get to the football and make plays. He has also been utilized on offense as a wide receiver, has good ball skills, does a nice job of high-pointing the ball and can generate turnovers when the opportunity is there.
