"I'm looking to play football first, but I'd like to play both," said Smith. "The Atlanta Braves are showing me the most interest in baseball. Arkansas, Iowa, Ole Miss, Florida, Vanderbilt, and Missouri invited me to their spring games. I went to Arkansas, Ole Miss, Missouri, and Vanderbilt. Missouri was my favorite team growing up, and my Top 5 right now is Ole Miss, Missouri, Vanderbilt, Arkansas, and Iowa."
Blytheville struggled last season, but with nine starters returning on offense, they shouldn't have much trouble moving the ball. Only three starters come back on defense, so they could find themselves in some shootouts this year.
Smith is a very good student, and he will have no trouble qualifying. He is going to have several options ahead of him in the near future.
