Top Alabama Athlete Names Favorites

<b>Terrell Smith</b> is one of the top athletes in the state of Alabama. He could star on either side of the ball, and he has attracted the attention of top schools around the south.

Terrell Smith is receiving a lot of interest from several schools and said, "I have received letters from every school in the SEC. I have recently received new mail from Colorado and Marshall. The schools sending the most mail are Alabama and Ole Miss."

This spring, Smith made a trip to Gainesville to watch Florida's spring game. "Florida was alright. I spoke with Coach Wick. He told me he would be coming to Birmingham to look at all the prospects. He said he would come and watch me at practice," Smith replied.

Smith also tripped to Oxford to watch the Rebels in action for their spring game. "I liked Ole Miss. They have a really good passing game. I really like that since I'm a receiver. I spoke with the Recruiting Coordinator at Ole Miss. He said he was going to come to one of my practices," Smith added.

Smith is naming favorites and said, "I would have to say Alabama and Ole Miss. I really like the atmosphere at both schools. They both like throwing the ball. I'm also considering LSU, Florida and Georgia Tech."

When asked about his strengths on the field, Smith replied, "My strengths are my speed and my jumping ability. I would like to improve my speed a little bit. I run around a 4.4, but I would like to get a little bit faster."

Smith's summer camp schedule is going to include trips to Alabama, Ole Miss, Florida and Miami.

"We started spring training last Tuesday. I know that coaches from Alabama, Ole Miss, Florida, and Tennessee plan to come to one of the practices," Smith said.

Smith has some impressive numbers in the weight room and said, "I bench press 315, squat 475, and power clean 225."

As a junior, Smith was named 6A All-State Honorable Mention.
