"It's been fun ever since I came here," Smith said before his season opener on Monday night. "We have a good team and I think we're going to have a great season."
Smith, 6-0 and 222 pounds, has emerged as one of the most heavily recruited linebackers in the state of Florida.
"I've already gotten a bunch of offers," he said. "It's continued this month because a lot of people have been calling the house."
Smith said Miami was one of the first schools that contacted him this month.
"Coach Hargreaves called me on the first day," he said. "He was basically telling me to come visit the school and everything and he asked if I'd be coming to the (Florida) game."
Unfortunately for Smith, he was unable to make it to the Orange Bowl on Saturday.
"I did watch it on TV," he said. "At first it looked like Florida was going to beat Miami but Miami had too much heart. They wanted it more."
Smith is getting ready for his first official visit of the year.
"My first official visit should be next weekend to Oklahoma," he said. "They were one of my first offers and I really like their coaches. I like them a lot. After that, I haven't set any up yet. I'm also looking at UM, Florida, Ohio State, Pittsburgh, and Kansas State. All of them have (offered)."
