Having made two prior visits with his future school, University of Louisville commit Trey Smith was familiar with what the Cardinals program had to offer. He was impressed enough to commit in September over offers from Mississippi State, Memphis, Troy, Texas State and Arkansas State, along with continuing rising interest from many others.
This past weekend, the three-star prospect from Madison, Miss., made his official visit with the Cardinals program.
“I was really amazed by what I learned during my visit,” he told Cardinal Authority. “I already had visited two times before, but I learned so much more that it makes me even more excited to be going to Louisville.”
The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Smith is the son of former NFL All-Pro wide receiver Jimmy Smith and has played both running back and quarterback in high school. He anticipates arriving at U of L in June and start competing for a spot as a true freshman.
“I'm looking forward to getting there,” he said. “I'm going to come in trying to earn a spot and that's what I'm going to do.”
While on his visit, he was able to spend time with former high school teammate and U of L redshirt freshman lineman Jimmie Terry.
“It was pretty fun being around guys I played with,” he said. “I really enjoyed that and meeting with the coaches. It was a great visit and I can't wait to get back.”
Smith also plays for the division leading Madison High School basketball team.
“I play a little at all positions because we don't have any post presence,” he said. “I'm more a rebounder and defender, so I'm that guy that you send in when you need a big rebound or strong defense.”
