Four-star safety becomes first commitment for Scott Frost at Nebraska
Scott Frost has his first commitment as the head coach at Nebraska.
Sunday evening, four-star safety C.J. Smith announced that he had committed to the Huskers, becoming the eighth member of the 2018 class, but the first official commit for Frost. He made his announcement via Twitter.

Smith is a West Palm Beach, Florida native and is ranked as the No. 26 safety in the 2018 class. He’s also the No. 57 recruit out of the state of Florida.
He had 25 offers, including six from B1G programs. He chose Nebraska over Michigan, Ohio State, Penn State, Wisconsin and Purdue. He also had offers from Alabama, LSU, Virginia Tech and West Virginia outside the B1G.
This was a huge commitment for Frost and his staff and could be the first domino to fall. It’s especially huge since the Huskers have lost so many recruits with Mike Riley’s firing, including four-star receiver Joshua Moore who decommitted earlier on Sunday.
