A tall wide receiver who can make catches in traffic? Yes please.

On Tuesday evening, Collierville, Tenn. (St. George’s - Collierville) wide receiver recruit Isaac Smith announced via his Twitter account that he verbally committed to the Wisconsin Badgers.

Smith is listed as a three-star prospect by 247Sports and a two-star prospect by Rivals, and he announced his commitment after taking his official visit Saturday against Central Michigan.

The 6-foot-3-inch wideout weighs in at 185 pounds, and his size is complemented with a good pair of hands. Wisconsin beat out other offering schools which included Missouri, Army and Cornell.

Smith is a bit of an under-the-radar type recruit and has significant upside because of some of his positive immutable characteristics. He may need to develop in terms of getting separation, but improved route running and agility skills can go a long way. And, even if those skills do not improve, he has shown an ability to make nice catches in traffic.

Smith announced receiving his offer from UW on July 22.

Smith is the second commitment in as many days for Paul Chryst and the Badgers, along with Cincinnati, Ohio DE James Thompson Jr. who verbally committed on Monday. Smith is the 16th scholarship member of Wisconsin’s 2020 class and the second WR, joining Chimere Dike of Waukesha.

The first home game of the season has already paid big dividends for the Badgers on the recruiting trail with these two scholarship players and one preferred walk-on, CB Amaun Williams of Milwaukee.
