National Signing Day: Wide Receiver Thaddius Smith Commits To Boston College

One of Boston College's first recruit, did an admirable job getting other "dudes" to BC, and could be an immediate impact on a depleted wide receiver position

Thadd Smith

Hometown: Springfield, PA
High School: Cardinal O'Hara
Position: Wide Receiver
Height: 5-9
Weight: 170 lbs.
40: 4.55
Twitter: @Thadd_4Nation

Highlights: Hudl

Rankings: Rivals 3* (position 77, State 3), Scout 3* (position 161), ESPN 3* (rated an 79, 70 position, 20 state), 247 Sports 3* (rated an 86, position 44 state 14). Selected Boston College over James Madison, Massachusetts, Temple, Toledo and Rutgers. Originally recruited by Ryan Day.

Strengths: Thaddius Smith seems to be the quintessential slot receiver, much like an Alex Amidon and Spiffy Evans. He has good speed, and is deceptively quick off the line. Solid hands, and good route running, most scouts say he is good at a lot of things, but not super at anything in particular. Had a fantastic senior season at Cardinal O'Hara

Realistic Outlook: Smith is an interesting wide receiver for 2014. Boston College clearly doesn't have a lot of depth at wide receiver after losing their only really legit option in Alex Amidon. However, Bobby Swigert and Spiffy Evans both are solid slot receivers who have experience at the college level. On the other hand both have lingering questions with Swigert coming back from a brutal knee injury, and Evans hasn't really shown that he can be a legitimate target as a wide out. If that is the case, could Smith play in 2014? He may be around, so it will be intriguing to see how quickly he picks up the offense. He's a little guy, but looks like a legit threat as a wide out. Plus he's already played with Darius Wade in 7v7 last year, could that chemistry pay dividends in the future?
