The Ohio State football program has offered a scholarship to the son of a Pro Football Hall of Famer.
On Thursday, EJ Smith, the son of former Dallas Cowboys and Florida Gators star Emmitt Smith, announced on social media that the Buckeyes have given him his first official Big Ten offer.
Smith is a member of the Class of 2020 and a standout running back for Jesuit College Preparatory School of Dallas.
The 5-foot-10 all-purpose running back also holds offers from Georgia, Jackson State, Kentucky and SMU.
Smith currently isn’t ranked by recruiting services like 247 Sports or Scout.com, but you can expect to see him continue rising up the board of prospects as it comes closer to time for him to make his college decision.
