NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS' JULIAN EDELMAN SPONSORS WR XAVIER SMITH REGISTRATION IN HUB FOOTBALL'S "THE CAMP"

Former Dixie State wide receiver Xavier Smith has registered to participate in HUB Football "THE CAMP."

What is notable about his registration is that he is being sponsored by New England Patriots WR Julian Edelman.

Smith, a frequent workout partner of Edelman''s in Southern California, was unable to secure much visibility from NFL scouts while playing at small school, Dixie State (Utah).

Smith was an explosive player at Dixie State University, an emerging FCS Independent program.

Smith averaged 17.3 yards per reception in 2019 and two receiving touchdowns. Smith also scored a touchdown as a kick returner where he averaged nearly 28 yards per return.

In 2018, Smith caught 38 passes for 619 yards and four touchdowns.

Edelman brought Smith to the attention of HUB staff, as he believes Smith possesses NFL ability.

Smith joins quarterback Chad Kanoff, tight end Graham Adomitis and running back Devonte Williams as "THE CAMP"''s initial registrants.

As of this writing, "THE CAMP" already has over 30 registrants, all of whom will then be subject to a selection process.

Multiple NFL teams have committed to HUB as clients, and will be present at "THE CAMP."

"THE CAMP" is projected for the end of September, 2020 with the final date to be confirmed shortly.
