The Irish have offered in writing according to Smith. "They did offer me in writing," he said. "Their coach came out in May and gave it to my coach. I like Notre Dame a lot. They have so much tradition there. They're a team on the rise. I was supposed to go to camp there this summer, but I had gone to so many camps that I didn't think I could go to another. I was camped out. I'd like to get up there and find out more about the schoo."

Smith is a very talented athlete that can a number of positions. We asked him what position most schools were recruiting him to play. "Most say defensive back. Some say wide receiver and some also say running back," Smith said. We asked him what position Notre Dame has said. "I think they said safety. I don't care where I play."

A decision for Smith will likely come after his season. "I plan to take my visits," Smith said. "I don't know if I'll take all five. If a school jumps out and feels right, I'll go ahead and commit but my plan is to take my visits."

Does Smith have a list of favorites right now? "No, I'm pretty open," he said. "I'll probably start to narrow it down at the start of my season. As of right now, I'm pretty open."

The rumors have been that the in-state schools will be difficult to beat. We asked Smith if those rumors were true. "I hear that a lot," Smith said. "Everybody has a chance. I'm going to do what feels right for me. Those people saying that don't really know me."
