2008 Media Guide: Team-oriented veteran in his fifth year at Ohio State … on track to graduate in December.
2007: An outstanding contributor on special teams … played on three of the special units … special teams dog tags: Illinois … third-year letterman.
2007 Media Guide: In his fourth year at Ohio State … came to Ohio State as a linebacker.
2006: Saw action in 11 games, mainly as a member of the special teams.
2006 Media Guide: Came to Ohio State as a linebacker and was redshirted as a freshman … began last season with the defense, but was switched to tight end after injuries claimed Rory Nicol and Ryan Hamby … he and Marcel Frost were the Buckeyes’ “lonesome ends” much of the season … was used primarily as a blocker, but did have five receptions and has good hands … is a physical player with a great attitude … is still learning the position and has a chance to be an excellent tight end … also plays on the special teams.
2005: Began the year at linebacker, but was moved to tight end when injuries decimated the position … played in 11 games and earned his first letter … had three reception against San Diego State in week three of the season … also had receptions against Illinois and Northwestern … his 16-yard grab vs. Northwestern was his longest catch of the year.
2005 Media Guide: Was redshirted last year as a freshman … is a good athlete with size and speed … lends quality depth to an already deep position … can play either of the two outside linebacker spots (and he saw time at both in the springs so the coaches could get a better handle on where he would be most valuable) and could also move to a down position on the defensive line … most of his playing time this year will probably be with the special teams … should be a standout on the coverage units … is a physical player with a great attitude.
2004: Did not play any games.
High School: Versatile performer who can play linebacker or tight end … expected to concentrate on the former at Ohio State, but this is not cast in stone and can certainly change in the fall … is a highly regarded athlete who excelled in high school against good competition … has excellent closing speed and is a jarring hitter … could make a name for himself in the fall with the special teams … coming off a productive senior season in which he was credited with a career-high 125 tackles, including four sacks … also had three interceptions last season … started as a junior and finished the season with 70 tackles.
Personal: Is the son of Wilbert and Elzoria Smith … nickname is B-Smeezy … favorite subject is economics … favorite former Buckeye is Pepper Johnson.
