The Buckeyes welcome the Cornhuskers to Ohio Stadium for a Top-10 Showdown.
More on Erick: Another fine safety prospect out of the talent-rich Glenville High School program (think of former Buckeyes like Christian Bryant, Jermale Hines and Donte Whitner), Smith was a consensus four-star recruit in 2014 and a Top 100 player in the nation with overall national rankings of No. 43 by Scout, No. 51 by Rivals and No. 61 by 247Sports. He was one of the leaders of a 2013 Glenville Tarblooder team that went 13-2 and advanced to the Division II state championship game. He was considered a Top 5 safety prospect by two recruiting services: No. 2 by 247Sports, No. 4 by Scout. He was a U.S. Army All-American and a third-team Division II Associated Press all-state pick. He is the son of Erica and Curtis Smith.
