Smith is coming off an outstanding sophomore season in which he was named an AP All-America Third Team member. In 2020, Smith finished with 61 total tackles, eight tackles for loss and two interceptions.
Smith is a key loss on the West Virginia defense as his return was expected to lead a unit that has already lost Darius Stills and Tony Fields to the 2021 NFL Draft.
