Juco receiver picks South Alabama

Dean College (Franklin, Mass.) wide receiver Shavarez Smith has committed to play for the South Alabama Jaguars, according to multiple reports.

Charlotte, Ohio and South Carolina also extended scholarship offers to the 6-foot-1, 200-pound prospect. Ball State and Murray State showed interest in the McDonough, Ga. native.

After viewing junior college film, ESPN scouts called Smith, "a thickly built and strong player who might lack great speed, but is sound and productive ... just does a lot of things well and could be a great possession type receiver who catches everything and could play in the slot or outside."
