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
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
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.
