Quick Hitter: Josh Smith

Couple big visits penciled in for Mansfield (TX) Timberview running back Josh Smith. Could an offer and commitment follow?

"I'm going to the Kansas State camp and SMU camp for sure," said Smith. "I'm going to plenty more this summer, I just don't know what other schools yet."

Texas, Texas A&M, Purdue, and Rice are possibilities.

It has been KSU and SMU, though, that have shown the 5'8, 170-pound, 4.4 speedster the most attention in the last month.

Smith says both schools will be by Timberview this spring for practices.

"If I get offered during spring ball, I might commit right away," he noted.

Looking at the numbers, it is easy to see why Smith is drawing the interest he is. He put together quite the junior campaign, taking a whopping 266 handoffs for 1,752 yards and 15 scores.

He also tallied 150 receiving yards and a touchdown on 9 catches, finishing as the second-leading overall scorer for the Wolves with 98 points (2-point conversion included).

When he's not showcasing his toolset in camps, Smith is busy traveling the country with teammates and fellow Texas stars Edward Paris, Brandon Simmons, Shane McCarley, Chevoski Collins and others, competing in New Level Athlete 7-on-7 Tournaments.

After coming close to taking both the Atlanta tournament and the Las Vegas tournament last month, they will give the third time a charm this weekend in Pittsburgh.
