Smith Returns From USC; Discusses Visit

A physical specimen, an athletic marvel and referred to some affectionately as "a freak of nature", Reggie Smith proves to be one of the finest recruiting prospects at any position this year. He recently took a trip to USC to take in their games against Washington. What were his thoughts about the trip and does he have any other plans in store at this time?

Reggie Smith is the type of athlete that any coach would want to have.  He's fast, agile, powerful and just an all-around dominating player.  The five-star athlete out of Edmond, OK has many suitors, one of those being the University of Southern California.  He recently visited the Trojans this past weekend and returned to give us his thoughts about the visit.  "It was a pretty good time, visiting with the coaches and talking to some of the others.  It was a pretty good atmosphere." He said.  Reggie feels that USC's atmosphere is much more high-paced and there's far much more to do than what he's used to.  Reggie said that he rated the visit an "8" on a 1-10 scale, 10 being the best visit possible.


One thing that Reggie wants to do on each official visit is learn as much as he can about the potential school and that's just what he did during his visit with the Trojans.  "I know a lot more about them.  When it comes time, I'll be able to make a more informed decision now."  Smith says he's going to take all of the information he learns from his official visits and weigh each prospective school against each other before coming to a decision.  He also mentioned that he's unsure when his next visits will be.  He feels that they will likely come after his senior football campaign ends because he wants to be able to fly out on a Friday and experience the school over the weekend.  


Reggie plans to make all five official visits, but if he finds the right place for him, he said, though unlikely, he may commit on the spot.  "If it feels right, I could definitely pull the trigger," he said.  Recruiting Reggie for Nebraska is Defensive Line Coach John Blake.  "I talked to Coach Blake about a week ago.  He's a good guy, he's a good Christian man, easy to get along with."  Coach Blake has been known for his recruiting skills and will hopefully be able to convince Reggie into taking a trip up to Lincoln.
