DETROIT – Already rated a four-star prospect, Huber Heights (Ohio) Wayne 2018 wide receiver L’Christian Smith was just one of may talented prospects at Detroit’s Sound Mind Sound Body football camp on Friday.
Which left the talented Smith in awe of his camp experience afterwards.
“I thought the camp was a special one honestly,” Smith said. “The competition was crazy. This is my first year going to these high profile camps, being out here with high profile guys with 60 offers and stuff, It was just something else.”
Smith’s recruitment has been heating up as well. Already he holds notable offers from Michigan, Michigan State, Penn State, Rutgers, Alabama, Ohio State, Tennessee and Kentucky among others, although he was quick to note he has leader.
“All of them are at the top of my list right now,” he said, noting no favorites. “I’m a sophomore going into my junior season, so I got a while. So all of them are pretty high on my list right now.”
While no leader was named, Smith discussed his reaction to receiving his U-M offer with The Michigan Insider’s, Sam Webb.
“It was my mind boggling,” Smith said. “Coming just so early in my career, I was just ecstatic and I was just happy about it.”
Smith has a unique connection to Michigan, with his former high school teammate, who Tyree Kinnel, now plays for the Wolverines.
“Tyree is a close friend of mine, who was a senior my freshman year plays up there right now,” Smith said. “We’ve been in contact a lot actually. He’s been just telling me to get up there and that I need to meet everybody. Which I am, and I can’t wait to get up there.”
Smith says his plan is to visit Michigan’s campus this coming month.
As of right now, Smith says he plans to announce his commitment on national signing day.
"Just where I am happy at,” Smith said on what he’s looking in a program. “Just knowing where I’ll fir in all four years. I don’t know what I’ll be thinking as a senior. Right now I am sophomore, a young guy going into my junior year. So it’s all about how I am feeling at the time.”
