Back in town around the top 2013 prospects in the area, Smith visited Clemson several times during the season.
Saturday's visit from Kernersville, N.C. was the first since a December trip for a bowl practice.
"It was wonderful," he told CUTigers about the Junior Day stop. "There was nothing that could have went wrong. The meetings with the coaches were good. I got to meet The Judge, Jeff Davis. I got to meet the chaplain [James Tapp]. Dabo [Swinney], I enjoyed him speaking."
The 6-foot-7, 310-pound prospect enjoyed meeting one of the Tigers' top players.
"Sammy Watkins, he came back and just chilled during dinnertime," Smith said. "He walked outside with us. We got to walk down the hill. I took a picture with him on Facebook. We got to go to the basketball game. We got to take some pictures with kids, R.J. Prince and me."
Smith was also impressed with what he learned about Swinney.
"He coaches 12 and under baseball," Smith said. "That's pretty good. Being a D-1 coach, that really [stood out]. He's a division-one coach on the TV all the time and he's there coaching, spending time with his son as a baseball coach. That means a lot."
Another good experience in Tigertown
