Smith expecting visitors

People don't realize it, but official visits are tough. Sure you get to jump in a plane, usually, and head to a school that you have probably never seen before. That takes time and energy. For P.J. Smith, the official visits are done, but the in-home visits are going to be fast and furious this week.

This past week, P.J. Smith went up to see Arkansas. The 6-foot-4 and 190-pound Smith, from River Ridge (La.) John Curtis Christian, said that the trip went well and compared to Nebraska.

"It went pretty good," Smith said. "Arkansas and Nebraska were both pretty similar, pretty even."

It wasn't just one thing that compared well at Arkansas with Nebraska; it was a lot of things.

"The academic support, the stadiums were nice and big, the weight room, the campuses and the coaches are all very even."

Smith is ready for the process to slow down a bit. He is done with official visits and he's ready to get some rest and get back to playing basketball.

"I am just taking it slow now. It's a tiring process. I was on trips the past two weekends and I have basketball too."

While the official visits are over the in-home visits aren't. Smith is hosting one school tonight and two tomorrow night.

"I have Arkansas tonight and Nebraska is tomorrow night. Baylor is coming tomorrow night too."

Despite what some people are touting as a two-horse race for Smith, Baylor is still in the picture for his services.

"Baylor is still in the picture. Baylor, Nebraska and Arkansas are really my top three. I don't have a timeframe for a decision."
