Notre Dame Offers 2018 Georgia CB Commit

October 6, 2017 Corey Bodden, Staff Writer

Rivals250 cornerback and Georgia commit Chris Smith picked up an offer from Notre Dame this morning.

After striking out at cornerback in the 2017 cycle, Notre Dame is looking to add multiple players at the position in 2018.

The Irish staff continues to evaluate the top players across the country and target the best fits. The board expanded this morning with a new offer.

Per his Twitter, Notre Dame has extended an offer to Atlanta Hapeville Charter product Chris Smith.

Christopher Smith
RR: 5.8
Ht: 6'0.0"
Wt: 165.0
Class: 2018

The 6-0, 165-pounder committed to Georgia on May 1 and also holds offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Miami (Fla.), Michigan, Ohio State and USC, among others. Rivals ranks Smith as the nation's No. 15 cornerback and No. 171 player nationally.

Smith is taking an official visit to Michigan this weekend, so he is open to other schools. Notre Dame will look to do the same.

Per Rivals analyst Chad Simmons, Irish defensive backs coach Todd Lyght extended the offer. Smith isn't just yet if he will take a trip to Notre Dame.

Smith is the second cornerback committed elsewhere to land an Irish offer in the past month. Washington (D.C.) H.D. Woodson product and Maryland commit Noah Boykin added Notre Dame to his offer list last month.

Stay tuned to Blue & Gold for more on Smith.
