Nate Smith commits to Temple

Nate Smith, a senior defensive back at Archbishop Wood High School, gave an oral commitment to play football at Temple on Monday night.

The 6-foot, 190-pounder orginally gave an oral commitment to West Virginia. But he changed his mind after West Virginia defensive coordinator, Jeff Casteel, resigned to coach at Arizona under Rich Rodriguez.

Smith also had scholarship offers from Michigan State, South Carolina and Toledo.

He and Wood teammate, Brandon Peoples, will both sign national letters of intent to play at Temple on Wednesday.
