VERNON SMITH, LB, 6-1, 230, 4.6, NORTH LAUDERDALE, FLORIDA (NORTH LAUDERDALE ACADEMY):
JH: How is your season going?
VS: "So far it is going pretty good individually, but as a team we are only 2-5 on the year. I don't know my season stats, but I had over 15 tackles last game and I have been averaging that just about all year."
JH: Did you ever get a test score back so that you could start taking your visits?
VS: "The first time I took the test my scores got screwed up so they don't get to count. I am going to take the test again on November 1, st and when I get them back then I will start taking my visits."
JH: How is recruiting going for you at the moment?
VS: "I still like Oklahoma, Kansas State, Pittsburgh and Ohio State. I have been offered by all four of those schools."
JH: Do you have a leader at this time?
VS: "Oklahoma is still my leader."
JH: Have you seen Oklahoma play on television?
VS: "I saw the game against Missouri. I thought Oklahoma played pretty well, but they could have done better. It seems funny saying that, because they whipped up on Missouri pretty good. They have been putting 50 points on the board against everybody and this time they only got 34. They were very impressive on both sides of the ball and especially on defense."
JH: Have you set any visits yet?
VS: "Yes, but I haven't set any dates for visits at this time."
