Lamont Smith ran for 990 yards and 13 touchdowns on 152 carries, despite missing time with an injured ankle this season. He missed four games. Smith was named to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette "Fabulous 22" team.

Smith visited Boulder officially this weekend after taking an unofficial visit for the Arizona State game. "I had a real good time," Smith says. "My host was Cha'pelle Brown and he showed me around everywhere. We went to the Nuggets-Heat game and also the CU-Colorado State game."

The Keystone State native was originally recruited to play for CU as a corner, but after seeing some senior film, the CU staff likes him at receiver as well. "They told me I will get a shot at both sides of the ball. I do not care where I play as long as I am on the field."

Coach Hagan did an in-home visit with Smith last week and Coach Hawkins will be heading to his home in January. "The coaches have been speaking to me about coming there and what I am going to be doing to contribute."

The versatile athlete believes the Buffs will be back very soon. "There was a lot of inexperience on the field this year. We should be much better next fall. We have a top recruiting class coming in and some key returning starters."

Smith says after he committed to Colorado he didn't receive too much interest from other schools. He originally verballed to the Buffs over offers from Temple and Arizona State.

He is now prepping himself for track season where he competes in the 100, 200 and 4X100.
