Ito Smith is a player we'll see on Sundays next season. The Independence Bowl won't be the last time we see Ito in a Southern Miss helmet.
He's heading to the Senior Bowl. Ito is the first Golden Eagle invited since Jamie Collins back in 2012.

It's also a homecoming. Ito is a Mobile native that watched the game growing up. Smith is one of 10 running backs in FBS history with 4,000 career rushing yards and 1,000 career receiving yards.
