6-2, 210 pound wide receiver prospect Christian Smith has built an impressive offer list entering the end of his junior year in high school. "I have offers from Tennessee, Clemson, Auburn, Alabama, Florida, LSU and Mississippi State," Smith told CUTigers.com in a recent interview.
When asked if he has any favorites, Smith responded, "My top five right now would be Alabama, Florida, Tennessee, Clemson and LSU."
Alabama has a huge advantage because older brother Andre signed with the Tide in February, but Christian states that he will look at other schools. "It helps them a little bit. I am going to look at some others schools though," he said.
Clemson assistant coach Dabo Swinney is recruiting Smith for the Tigers. "Yeah I am getting a lot of letters from Coach Swinney. He is telling me to come up for a game," he said.
Where has Smith visited this spring? "So far I went to the A-day at Alabama," he said. "I haven't gone anywhere else. I am going to the Scout.com combine at Alabama on the 29th. I am also going to the Nike camp at Florida."
What will be the most important factor when the prize recruit selects a college? "I will look at how they bring in freshmen," he responded. "I want to see how they handle them. I am looking for early playing time. I believe I can start wherever I go. I'm don't want to be cocky I just think I can play early."
Don't expect to know where the Alabama standout will sign until close to signing day. "Yeah I want to keep everybody guessing, just like my brother did," Smith added.
Christian had a great junior campaign with over 500 yards rushing and over 400 yards receiving.
