With 23 days left until National Signing Day, the activity will be fast and furious. The rumors will be rampant. Most of all the excitement will be high. Slap the Sign is going to try to make sense of it all.
Smythe is a 4-star Tight End from Belton, Texas. He has great size at 6’6” 230. He decommitted from Texas and is looking at a few programs. These programs include Michigan, Stanford, Oregon and Notre Dame. Notre Dame re-offered the Tight End today. This essentially means that the staff made him aware that his offer is still committable. Smythe will visit South Bend in the next three weeks. With the injury to Alex Welch and the loss of Tyler Eifert, Notre Dame probably only has three good Tight Ends in Ben Koyack, Troy Niklas and Mike Heuerman.
