Tulane Green Wave
Smart finishes strong at Senior Bowl
MOBILE, Ala. – Former Tulane football standout Tanzel Smart closed out his collegiate career in fine fashion as his South squad edged out a 16-15 victory over North in the 68th edition of the Reese's Senior Bowl.
Smart earned quality playing time for the South, earning the start at defensive tackle and recording two tackles. He saw time on the defensive front in all four quarters and was also in on the field goal block team.
Smart recorded his first tackle late in the first quarter on a three-yard run by Michigan's De'Veon Smith. He and LSU's Duke Riley combined to bring down Smith at the South's eight-yard line. The North would get three points out of the drive on a 22-yard field goal by Arizona State's Zane Gonzalez.
The Baton Rouge, La., native was in on his second tackle in the fourth quarter on a one-yard rush by Toledo's Kareem Hunt. Florida's Alex Anzalone assisted on the tackle.
Following his week in Mobile, Smart is slated to head back to the Tom Shaw Performance Enhancement facility at ESPN Wide World of Sports in Orlando to continue preparing for a possible NFL Scouting Combine invite next month and for his pro day later this spring.
