“It's a really good offer,” said Smith. “They came and offered me, and two other guys from my team, so they seem to like what we’re doing here.”
It’s hard not to like what Destrehan is doing this season, as the Wildcats are 13-0 and headed into a match-up with 11-2 West Monroe in the Class 5A Semifinals.
The three Wildcats have yet to really sit down and discuss the Bears in-depth because of their upcoming game tonight, but Smith said that the trio will talk about it this week.
“We’re really close,” Smith said. “They’re DBs, but we’ve played football alongside each other for a long time.”
Smith was offered as a receiver by Louisiana native and Bears linebackers coach Garret Chachere, who introduced some of what Cal has to offer, to Smith.
“[Cal] is a great school, and I have to look deep into it,” said Smith. “I don’t really know too much about Cal, so I definitely have to do my homework on them … They have a really nice school out there, and a great football program that they’re trying to get up. They lost a couple games by one touchdown, so he was telling me what they have to offer, and what I can look forward to.”
