"We played against Delray Beach Atlantic and they had a tough defense but we really haven't been challenged yet," Smith said. "Looking at our schedule, I dont see it happening if we play our game. We just have to stay focused and keep working hard."
Smith, 5-8 and 180 pounds, is widely considered the top running back prospect in the state. He's a major prospect for a number of programs.
"I keep getting all the calls and stuff each week," he said. "I haven't set up any of my visits yet but I'm on the verge of that. I'll take some during the season and probably some after. I definitely plan on taking all five."
The talented running back still favors the Hurricanes.
"Miami's on top," he said. "They have a great program, pretty much the top one. Just look at the success they have. They have it all. The coaches are great. I really enjoy talking with all of them. They make me feel comfortable. The players are real cool. I was at the Florida State game and the players were real cool, just real excited about winning. And the city, what else can you say? Miami's a great city. You have South Beach, everything. It's definitely a place I feel like I could spend the next few years of my life."
In addition to the Canes, Smith is looking at several other programs.
"It's still pretty open," he said. "Florida State and Florida have great programs and they're right here in Florida. NC State is doing some nice things and the coaches are nice."
Smith has been keeping an eye on UM's depth chart at running back, although that's not a factor to him.
"I dont care if they're all All-Americans," he said. "I know what I can do and I'll go in there and prove it. The best guy will play. Frank is having a nice year right now and I'm real happy for him coming back from the knee injuries like that. But, for real, the depth chart isn't a factor to me. There'll be competition no matter where you go and like I said, I'm confident in my ability to compete with any of those guys."
Smith is a full academic qualifier.
