"I'm very interested in Kentucky," Alex Smith told Kentucky Sports Report on Friday. "I've got a lot of family from Hazard, Kentucky. So Kentucky would be a program I'd love to have an offer from."
Smith, who was on his way back from a scrimmage against Cincinnati Elder High School already holds an offer from hometown program Cincinnati but has heard several programs have high interest in his abilities.
At 6-foot-4, 225-pounds and still growing, Smith has heard the talk about being one of the top prospects in Southwest Ohio for the Class of 2010. But he knows work must be done.
"We open our season on Thursday night against Huber Heights Wayne and that will be a tough test to open the season. We then have another hard game the following week where we get to play in Paul Brown Stadium."
Smith left no mistaking his interest in the Wildcats.
"I've had a chance to see them play and they like to throw the ball to their tight ends. If they offer me it'll be a program I'd take a hard look at."
We'll have more on Smith as the season progresses.
