Imminent Decision for Smith?

The recruiting picture for Perris (Calif.) Citrus Hill's Greg Smith has become much clearer after his recent official visit.

The 6-3 240 Greg Smith doesn't know what role awaits him at Arizona State, but when we talked to him following his official visit to Tempe, it certainly sounds that his verbal commitment to the maroon and gold is just matter of time.

"Oh it was wonderful, one of the best times I had in my life," Smith said. "I didn't commit on the visit but I'm going to tomorrow when I call the coaches. I just want to talk it over with my family. "Everyone on the team was very inviting and you can tell that they're very family oriented. That really impressed me. It's just a great environment and there's a lot of opportunity. The coaches said that they're recruiting me as an athlete. I could play tight end, outside linebacker, or fullback.

The Hawk's standout was hosted by defensive end Lawrence Guy, and Smith added that he had no preference which side of the ball he would like to line up at.

"I think I'm pretty good on defense," he stated, "but I do have that offensive knack and I like to score. But in general I just love the game and I'll play anywhere, even special teams."

Smith lined up at all the three aforementioned position in his senior season, as the Hawks completed a 14-0 campaign.

As a tight end he was second on the team in both receiving yards (712) and receiving touchdowns (12). He also had two rushing touchdowns from his fullback position. No defensive stats were available but Smith indicated that he received first team all-CIF honors for his play there.

Smith has already visited UTEP and had a visit scheduled to Fresno State this upcoming week, but indicated that he plans to "wrap up" his recruiting and not take that trip to the Bulldogs.
