S Tykee Smith officially signed with West Virginia

Philadelphia (PA) safety Tykee Smith has officially signed with the Mountaineers

Smith chose West Virginia over a plethora of offers that included the likes of Baylor, Duke, Maryland, Missouri, Michigan State, NC State, Pitt and Syracuse. Smith is rated as a high-end three-star recruit that has been heavily recruited almost as a four-star would.

There is a lot to like about his game. He is the hard hitter of this class and is possibly the best tackler as well. With his size, (5’11” 190 lbs) he can potentially end up playing the SPUR position, which is a hybrid safety/linebacker position. Recent players who have excelled at that position are K.J. Dillon and Dravon Askew-Henry.

Smith certainly has the talent to play day one in Morgantown and I’m sure head coach Dana Holgorsen will find a way to get him on the field as much as possible in his first year.
