Alabama has added another tight-end to its roster with Irvin Smith, a three-star prospect, who has decided to sign with the Crimson Tide after recently decommiting from Texas A&M. The former Fightin'-Texas-Aggie commit visited Alabama officially just one day removed from his decision to explorer his options elsewhere.

Smith, a New Orleans, La. native, is a 6-4, 230-pound prospect out of Brothers Martin. He is the 22nd ranked tight-end and the 523rd ranked prospect overall. Smith chose the Crimson Tide over Texas, Memphis and A&M. Running backs coach Burton Burns and special teams/tight ends coach Bobby Williams have been on the trail recruiting Smith even after his commitment to the Aggies on Oct. 16, with Burns spearheading the recruitment.

Burns visited Smith twice in-home, with one of those visits taking place the day before he decommitted from Texas A&M. Smith has recently gotten action from Memphis and Texas as well, but ultimately Alabama was able to convince him to come to Tuscaloosa.

Smith had 31 receptions for 558 yards and 4 touchdowns during his senior year at Brother Martin. He will join a roster with senior O.J. Howard getting most of the action at that position.
