Demetrius Smith, who will be a senior at West Florida High School in Pensacola this year, has verbally committed to play football for the University of Alabama-Birmingham Blazers.
"It's a great opportunity for him and he is one of these kids who has been a four-year starter for us," said Jaguars coach Harry Lees. "He's tall and he has really good speed."
Smith is 5 feet, 11 inches tall and weighs 155 pounds. He played cornerback and free safety for the Jaguars.
