"I went to Vanderbilt this past weekend, and I enjoyed that a lot," Smith said. "I love the atmosphere up there. I thought the scrimmage was real good.
"I liked the coaches. I met coach (Robbie) Caldwell. He seemed real nice. I met coach (Jimmy) Kiser. I talked to Jay Cutler for a few minutes. He was real nice."
The 6-2 190-pound prospect has passed for 6,000 yards in his high school career. College coaches know he has the ability to play several positions.
"Coach Caldwell wants me up there for camp this summer," Smith said. "He doesn't just want me to do quarterback drills. He wants me to show my skills as a wide receiver and in the secondary. He wants to see my athleticism."
Zach Smith runs the football in last December's Alabama High School Athletic Association All-Star Game that featured juniors.
Smith was full of excitement following his visit and shared his thoughts of the SEC program.
"I think Vanderbilt is a great school," he said. "I could get a great education. The football program is getting better and better every year."
Smith has plans to visit Georgia Tech this weekend. He will participate in the Scout.com All-American combine April 29 in Tuscaloosa.
