Nebraska-Omaha lineman transfers to FIU

Competition for the two vacant starting spots on FIU's offensive line got a bit tougher Tuesday when Nebraska at Omaha offensive lineman Shae Smith signed transfer papers to join the Golden Panthers.

Smith, a 6-foot-4, 281-pound redshirt junior, will be able to play this fall since the school he's leaving -- a Division II program with 100 years of tradition -- dropped its football team last month so its other sports could make the move to Division I.

He's expected to immediately compete for playing time on an offensive line that loses Brad Serini and Cedric Mack to graduation -- and possibly the NFL.
