Bio

Position: Linebacker

Previous College: None

Projection: Scout Team

Status: Walk-On

David Andrew Smith (b. Oct. 30, 1991) is a walk-on linebacker from Liberty Christian High School who redshirted last season and projects as a possible scout-teamer in 2011.

He was first-team all-state during his senior after recording 93 tackles and leading Liberty Christian to the state finals.

No matter what the level of competition, being first-team anything in the state of Texas is pretty damn impressive. He also was a consensus selection to the all-district first team and all-district MVP on defense in 2009.

In his sophomore year, he helped lead his team to a state championship. Based on the available evidence, you could make the case that Smith is among the more impressive walk-ons in recent years. I respect Texas football that much.
