After leading Cordova High (AL.) to the state championship game last week, Ryan Smith made the trek to Lexington to officially visit his new college home.
"It went real good," said Smith. "I like it a lot there. We had a great time," he finished. Smith visited with several other top prospects, some of which decided to commit. "It's a great town there. It's not too big and not too small."
Like most of them, Smith could play in several different positions for the Wildcats. Smith has been a versatile prospect during his time at Cordova. He's played safety, quarterback, wide receiver and has run the ball like a running back. At Kentucky he could even play linebacker. "I really don't know (whether they want me for offense or defense). For me, it really doesn't matter. They talked to me about playing on both sides of the ball," he finished.
But it wasn't just about football for Smith. "Coach Brooks was just telling me to come to Kentucky and have a chance to make a better life for myself, not just football," he said.
While Smith is excited about his future at Kentucky, his high school career ending painfully. "We did a good job coming back from down 14 points," he said. "But overall it wasn't our best game. Then I had that fumble in overtime. That wasn't good. I guess I played pretty good on. I had three touchdowns and a pick. On paper it was alright, but we still lost," he said.
Smith is a three-star prospect according to Scout.com.
