Alabama WR Building Big Offer List

Huffman receiver Christian Smith made a strong case at the Scout.com All-American combine in Tuscaloosa as the top receiver in Alabama.

His scholarship offers are increasing as well.

"It was the best combine I have ever been to," said Christian Smith said of the Scout.com All-American combine. "I thought it was a lot of fun. I thought Ryan [Williams] was the best defensive back out there."

"He checked me the first time, and the second time he wouldn't do it again. The guy from West End [Rudy Jones] did good as well. He was a little slow, but he was real strong."

Smith didn't have the combine numbers he wanted running a 4.60 forty-yard-dash and a 4.28 shuttle. He was fast enough according to the scouts in attendance.

Smith was eager to learn during the individual drills. He was described by former University of Alabama wide receiver Chad Goss as "the best wide receiver prospect out there. Christian is very coachable. I would tell him what to do, and he would go out there and do it."

Smith was described by all defensive back participants as the most impressive wide receiver. He certainly put on a show during the one-on-one competition.

He holds five impressive scholarship offers, and his combine performance certainly increased his stock as one of the South's elite receivers.

"Alabama, Auburn, LSU, Tennessee and Clemson are the offers I have right now," he said. "I would really like to start hearing from programs like Miami and USC."

"I don't have any favorites right now. I am wide open. Everyone is medium interest for me."

There is plenty of speculation the Crimson Tide is in the driver's seat for his signature with older brother Andre signing with Alabama in 2006. Christian plans to explore his options the same as big brother.

"Coach [Jimbo] Fisher and a coach from Tennessee has called me this week," he said. "Coach Fisher asked my dad a while back if I was going to follow Andre to Alabama or if I was going to be my own man. Dad told him I was going to be my own man, and I agree with him. I want to take all my official visits before I make a decision."

Smith has also attracted coaches from Alabama, Auburn, LSU and Memphis to Birmingham this spring.

He plans to follow in the same footsteps as older brother and not attend any summer camps. He will take several unofficial visits.
