Brother of OSU RB Rod Smith.
FWIW, Jaylon is donning an MSU hat at the Best of the Midwest combine today, although he'll probably commit to Michigan later today (kidding/too soon?)

Fort Wayne (IN) Bishop Luers five star OLB Jaylon Smith donning a Michigan State hat.
Great to see MSU is getting some consideration, but I have a feeling he'll be tough to pull away from OSU considering his brother is there. We shall see though.
WOTS is that Rod Smith has not been happy with tOSU and is thinking of transferring. Most think that ND is a likely landing spot for Jaylon; I know his mom is high on a school that's close.
Being from Ft. Wayne, it's about a 90 minute drive to South Bend, but it's only 2 hrs to EL. Doesn't hurt to have a former team-mate, Hammock, up at MSU. Make no mistake about it, this would be an enormous coup for the Spartans, but it's not something that I'd get my hopes up about.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.
Great news though. It is never a bad thing to get some recognition.
Also, per Twitter he ran a 4.44 and 4.46 40 today at the combine. Very fast for a LB.
Sounds like we've got a shot!
Yea, there's a reason 247 has him as the #5 player in the country regardless of position, and the #1 OLB. His brother, Rod, was a top 50 recruit nationally as well.
He was also seen hanging out with Josiah Price as well. Price was there watching the combine.
I feel like we're probably in the Top 3, but still an uphill climb with this kid. The longer he waits to decide, the better.
Buckeye fans aren't as quick to proclaim Smith a "lock" as they were a couple months ago.
Anyone know if he will be at junior day this weekend?
A lot of them are conceding him to ND because apparently his mom is in love with it. Who knows.

You actually brought something relevant and factual to the board today. +1
I see him probably going to ND. Awful lot of LB talent in the midwest this year. Much like DT last year. Sure glad we got Reschke on board. It would be nice to add a second great LBer. I am thinking S Jones.
