Reggie Smith was able to take in last night's Nebraska-Oklahoma game and check out two of the teams vying for his services. Reggie talks about what he thought of the game, his future visits to any other schools being considered and about a possible commitment decision timeframe.
any Nebraska recruitnik about Reggie Smith and the
saliva starts to flow. The DB/WR
prospect out of Edmond,
Oklahoma is high atop many schools'
boards but only one will be able to call him theirs. Reggie recently took in the
Nebraska-Oklahoma football game, so what did he think of the Big XII
battle? "It was alright, it was
kinda cold and chilly so I didn't stay all that long. Oklahoma's just pretty good and Nebraska's just
rebuilding right now," Smith said.
the coaches helping that process along is Coach John Blake who Reggie knows
quite well. "I've been
talking to Coach Blake, talked to him about two hours ago. We just talked about how they need me up
there and if I could get up there that Colorado week, that'd be good," said
Smith. He says that his visit
schedule is still rather up in the air regarding where he'll visit and when, but
he did say that he does not plan to take an official visit to either Oklahoma or Oklahoma State. "I only have four left and I know I'm
not going to the two in-state for officials," he said.
Reggie couldn't really gauge his interest specifically on the Cornhuskers, Smith
did say, "I like ‘em, they're cool, I like Coach Blake." With Oklahoma always looking to stockpile as much
talent as possible, especially within its own borders, one has to wonder about
the pressure being put on Reggie.
It was asked of him that if he felt an out-of-state school was the
choice, if he would be hesitant to commit to that school just to avoid any
unnecessary flack. "I doubt
that. If it feels right I'm gonna
do it, I don't care what anyone else thinks. I'm gonna make decision when it feels
right," said Smith. Reggie said he
does plan on taking all five official visits, but if he feels comfortable, he
has no qualms with committing while on a visit.
When looking for a potential school, Smith has a few things in mind
for his collegiate destination. "I
want the relationship with the coaches, I want an overall feel that I like it
there, I feel good in the environment.
I want to play, but do whatever I can do to help," said Smith. Reggie's Sante Fe High team takes on
ranked #6 in the state. Last week,
Smith's team won 14-3 over Mustang High.
Reggie amassed 150 yards rushing and one touchdown along with 90 yards
receiving and one touchdown. He was
also credited with nine tackles.
Reggie Smith is a coveted athlete and as we get closer to signing day, the
battle for his services is going to be as white hot as Smith's own
