Smith spends relaxed camp day at MSU

Orchard Lake St. Mary's cornerback remains solid with Michigan State even with increased interest. He talks about his -- and his father's -- experiences in East Lansing earlier this week.

Michigan State hosted a lot of players earlier this week for its 7 on 7 camp, but it was a relaxing time for Tyson Smith.

The Orchard Lake St Mary's cornerback and Michigan State commitment got the chance to talk with the coaches, but his father got plenty from the time in East Lansing, as well.

"It was a really relaxed day to get my father up there to see the school and the campus and they treated him well," Smith said. "He walked away talking about how he got to go up in the sky box in the stadium."

Smith and his father both have been around Michigan State multiple times, but this visit gave the elder Smith more to see and find more to love about the Spartans.

"He hadn't been in any of the practice facilities and actually had time to sit down and talk with the coaches for a few hours during 7 on 7, so he got to hang around," Smith said.

While his father took a lot from the day, Smith also got good feedback from the coaches.

"I talked to everyone and all were giving positive feedback," he said.

Smith has been generating more and more interest, growing since his commitment in December to Michigan State, which offered him last summer. Even with new offers coming – from Wisconsin recently – and interest from Big Ten and SEC schools, Smith insisted Michigan State is the place for him.

"I'm a hard commit," he said.

With the recruiting out of the way, he is focused on having no regrets left after his senior season and making the most of his time remaining.

"This year, since it's my last year, I'm doing everything I can because I don't want to be one of those guys that looks back at high school and say I wish I would have done this or done that," he said. "There's not a limit to what I'm doing (to get better), so I'm taking a lot of advice from older guys on what I should be doing."
