Three-star defensive tackle Enoch Smith Jr. (Chicago/Mt. Carmel) and center Brian Allen (Hinsdale, Ill./Central) pledged Saturday to sign with Michigan State, according to multiple sources.

Smith Jr., the nation's No. 32-rated DT, selected Michigan State over scholarship offers from Arizona, Cincinnati, Duke, Eastern Michigan, Illinois, Indiana, North Carolina State, Northern Illinois, Notre Dame, Purdue, Syracuse, Tennessee and Toledo.

The 6-foot-2, 276-pound prospect registered a time of 5.21 in the 40-yard dash, 4.49 20-yard shuttle, 26-inch vertical and 74.1 SPARQ at a Nike Combine before his junior season.
