Jaylon Smith is a flat-out playmaker, good enough that 247 Sports ranks him as the top linebacker in the class of 2013. Watch the video to see which NFL player Smith’s skills compare to.
He played his high school football in Fort Wayne, Indiana at Bishop Luers High School. His 6’3”, 212-pound body makes him a great fit in any defense.
Smith helped the Knights to a great 2012 season with an 11-4 record. He was a dual-threat player for Bishop Luers, as he played both linebacker and running back.
