Highlights of ATH Brandon Smith, #88 in the TAKKLE/Sports Illustrated's top 100. Brandon has verbally committed to the University of Michigan. Good toughness and solid tackling is Smith's hallmark. He is probably a better match as a linebacker. Smith needs to improve his quickness and acceleration and needs to add more bulk. He has a nose for the ball and is not intimidated by bigger players. He is a sleeper who will surprise many with his play on the next level.
