I talked to Coach (Gene) Chizik and he told me he was excited to have me come Auburn and be a part of the family," the LaGrange High School senior said.
"I have committed to Auburn and I am going to walk on and I am going to have a good chance to start on kickoffs," Smith said. "That is what they want me to specialize at. I think I will have a good chance to get a scholarship in December."
As a senior 30 of his 38 kickoffs were touchbacks. "The other ones were sky kicks," he said. He averaged 38 yards on 43 punts and was 5-16 on field goals with a longest of 56. "I was inches short on a 63-yarder just before halftime," he said.
Commenting on his visit, Smith said, "Josh Harris was my player host. He showed me around. He showed me his apartment and took me out We had a good time. We just toured everything and had a lot of good food and met some of the players. We went to the Auburn-Alabama basketball game."
"I have been an Auburn fan my whole life," Smith said. "I have been coming to games since I was four years old. We have season tickets. It is a dream come true."
