Smith is a first-team All-Big Ten selection after an incredibly impressive regular season with the Wolverines. He finished the regular season with 43 tackles.

Now, instead of being solely focused on the Big Ten title game Saturday against Purdue, Smith is facing potential prison time on a weapons charge.

Michigan officials haven’t returned calls from OutKick at the time of this article publishing on whether or not the criminal case will impact Smith’s status moving forward.
