They finished the regular season at 8-2 and they enter the first round of the playoffs this weekend against Tuscaloosa (Ala.) Hillcrest High School. For the season Smith has scored eight touchdowns through the air and has three interceptions from his free safety position.
"Most schools are recruiting me as a wide receiver," said Smith. "I have good size and I feel like I have a big edge over the defensive backs because I know what route I am running and they don't. I just feel real comfortable out there."
Earlier Smith had been leaning to stay in-state but now he has opened things back up, preferring, at least for the moment, to play for an offensive that passes more than the Tide and Tigers.
"I like both Auburn and Alabama but I am starting to think I want to play in a more wide open offense. I am starting to really like Ole Miss and Tennessee. I always thought I would play in the SEC but now I also really like Clemson. Their offense is very similar to the one we run. I would say that right now I prefer Clemson, Ole Miss and Tennessee. I also like Alabama, Auburn and LSU."
According to Smith they have all offered as well as Kentucky, Louisville, Southern Miss, Arkansas, Marshall and Purdue. He has set up official visits to Clemson (1-14) and Ole Miss (1-21). Smith will attend the Georgia/Auburn game this weekend. He will also be featured on Fox Sports Net South's Countdown to Signing Day tonight.
