"I have about 20 scholarship offers, linebacker Reggie Smith said. "My favorites right now are Virginia, Michigan State, Maryland and Ohio State.
"Ohio State hasn't offered me a scholarship yet.
"Virginia is my leader. They've been on me since my ninth grade and they're the best in keeping in contact and communicating with me."
Smith, a 6-foot-2, 235-pounder, from Cleveland (Shaw) is one of the best prospects in the Midwest.
He'll be a four-year starter in 2002, Reggie had 112 tackles and 17 sacks as a junior.
Smith will be making a position switch this season. He played defensive end last year and says he'll play an outside linebacker position this year.
He was named all-league in 2001 and he's a pre-season (Student Sports) All-America candidate this season.
Smith camped at Bowling Green, Michigan State, Toledo, Virginia and Maryland this summer. He also letters in basketball and track.
