Falcon Football Verbal: Jaylen Smith

Jaylen Smith has committed to BG.  He's a WR from Mandarin HS in Jacksonville.  Right now he has no stars on 24/7 but all of our other players started that way but they all have 3-stars now, for whatever that is worth.  Jaylen is 6'0" and 170 pounds and had offers from FIU and South Alabama.

Of our six verbals to date, two of them are WRs, where BG has an immediate need to get numbers up, even with the number of 12 sets we play.  BG had 6 WRs in last year's class.

Mandarin won the 8A state title in 2018  in Florida. They made a playoff run last season.  That's the biggest category and its a big deal.  It was their first state title.  The QB from that team is headed to Georgia.  There's no season-long stats for Smith, but he's all over the place with scoring plays.  In this game he was 7 for 117 and a TD and he's referred to as Beck's favorite target.

Welcome to the Falcons, Jaylen.
