ASU Commit Smith Talks Cal Offer

Before suiting up for a state semifinal game, one of three Destrehan (La.) Wildcats offered by the Bears in the past 24 hours -- an ASU commit, to boot -- talks to BearTerritory about his Cal offer.

Just after getting out of a pep rally and positions meetings in advance of Destrehan (La.)’s state semifinal game tonight, Arizona State wide receiver commit Alfred Smith gabbed with BearTerritory about a crazy 24 hours, in which California offered not only him, but two of his teammates on the defensive side of the ball – cornerback Korian Reynaud and safety Brandon Scott.

“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.” Top Stories
