Another Jesuit college recruit has changed his mind this week, as defensive lineman Brad Smith has decommitted from USF and committed to Lehigh University, offensive line coach Brian McNulty told the Tampa Tribune.

Smith joins teammate, tight end Travis Johnson, who announced via Twitter on Monday that he decommitted from Miami and reopened his recruitment process. USF and Missouri are said to be interested in Johnson. However, a main reason Smith changed schools was because he would be able to play right away at Lehigh, when at USF, Smith would have to gray shirt and not be able to enroll until Spring 2014.

Smith, a 6-foot-4, 220-pound senior, was second on the team with 10 sacks for the 7-3 Tigers, which missed the playoffs this season. Smith also had 57 tackles and three pat downs, while Johnson led the team with 287 receiving yards and two touchdowns.

Lehigh is a private university that plays in the Patriot League and the Mountain Hawks were 10-1 this past season, outscoring opponents 333-240.
