Down to four schools, DB DJ Smith of Marietta, GA took an unofficial visit to USC over the weekend for an extended stay. Smith spent the night in Columbia and took a closer look at USC. It was enough to convince him to return for an official visit.

Smith is down to USC, Clemson, Georgia and Tennessee, in no order, and plans to take official visits to each school. He will visit USC in January but has not determined which weekend it will be. He has not set the date for any of his other official visits either.

"It was a good visit," Smith said. "The fans were real loud. I enjoyed the game. The visit helped USC's (status) with me."

Smith will not take a visit next weekend and did not indicate when his next trip will be. With his season ending last weekend, his attention turns to his decision. His final four schools will likely have to wait until National Signing Day to find out what that decision will be.
