"I am heading up to Nebraska this weekend," Smith said. "I am excited to take that trip."
Like so many, this will be the first time for Smith to visit Nebraska. There is a need to cover a lot of ground this weekend.
"This will be my first time up that way, so I want to see everything. I want to see what they are working with."
With Nebraska coming in a little late in the process, one has to wonder if Nebraska stands a chance with Smith. Smith says, definitely.
"I like Nebraska. They are on top of my list. They are really up there on my list."
Why Smith likes Nebraska so much is simple. The new head coach and the style of defense that he runs is enough for Smith to put Nebraska high on his list.
Smith is a two-sport standout. On the hardwood, Smith is nearly averaging a double-double. His future will be on the gridiron though.
"I play forward in basketball, but really all over. I am averaging about 19 points a game and about eight boards. Close to a double-double."
