Final Four for Fred Smith

Detroit Southeastern star Fred Smith has narrowed his list of potential college suitors down to four. Michigan State made the list. Who are the Spartans competing against to sign the talented wide receiver? Did he recently attend camp in East Lansing? What are his plans for the remainder of the summer? Learn all that and more in this GoSpartans.net recruiting update.

After impressive performances across the spring circuit, including an MVP worthy performance at the Chicago Scout Combine, colleges across the region are paying more attention to Fred Smith, the 6-foot-2, 210-pound pass catcher from Detroit's Southeastern High School.

Despite that, Smith, who had previously planned on taking his time through the process, has recently talked to GoSpartans.net about narrowing his list of potential suitors.

"Michigan, Michigan State, Ohio State and Illinois," Smith told GSN. "That is my final four schools. All of them have offered except Ohio State wants me to come to Columbus to pick up the offer instead of mailing it to me."

With the list paired down to a manageable four schools, Smith is now focusing on getting to each college campus over the summer. A trip to the Michigan State summer camp was first in line over the past week, but, due to unforeseen circumstances, his visit to East Lansing had to be put on hold.

"I was going to be at Michigan State for their first camp," Smith continued to GoSpartans.net. "I wanted to be up there for camp, but my sister went into labor so I couldn't make it. She had a healthy baby girl."

The visit to East Lansing is yet to be rescheduled, but, that hasn't stopped Smith from thinking of the Spartans.

"I've still been in contact with Michigan State. I'm working on a scheduling a time when I can come up and bring my family with me. Education is an important factor so I'd like my parents to see what each school."

Smith is also expected to visit both Michigan and Ohio State for one day at their camps over the course of the summer. GSN will continue to provide the latest with MSU target Fred Smith.
