Wide receiver Tevaun Smith had quite a journey to get to this point. The 6-foot-2, 186-pound Smith dominated his competition in high school, but since it was in Canada some questioned his competition.

Q: How did you arrive at your decision tonight?
SMITH: I just spoke with my parents about it tonight and they thought it really sounded like Iowa was the place for me, so I committed.
