Marshall Receiver has OU in Top Two

Marshall High has a pair of players in Dameon Smith and Darius Jones who are being recruited by a number of elite programs. They have talked about being a package deal, and it looks like it could be Oklahoma, Texas A&M, and LSU being the most likely destinations.

Damion Smith, a 6-foot-1, 200-pound wide receiver from Marshall High in Texas is one of the more highly recruited players in the "Lone Star State", but he says he does not worry about doing anything fancy out on the field.

"Just catching the ball really," Smith said of his best asset. "I don't really look up to anybody or try to pattern myself after anybody. I just try to be myself."

Smith is starting to pull down some major offers, but one school has taken a little bit of a more proactive approach.

"Texas A&M," Smith said when asked who was showing him the most interest. "They have offered me. All of my offers are from A&M, Baylor, U of H, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and Louisiana Tech."

When mentioning his favorites he put a little more emphasis on Oklahoma, as if that offer meant a little bit more.

"Yes sir," Smith responded when asked if OU was a school he was high on. "Oklahoma is a school that I am giving a hard look at right now."

"I am planning on getting out to a few of these schools real soon and take a look. I am definitely going to visit A&M and Oklahoma."

"Really they are just great football teams. That is what I like the most about them."

Smith has already taken a look at the Sooners and Aggies Big 12 South rival.

"I have already went to Oklahoma State. I went to their junior day. It was nice and I liked it. I got to talk to their coaches and all of that. They just built on to their football stadium and weight room."

Smith and his close friend and teammate Darius Jones, who also holds an offer from OU, have been talking about paying together on the next level as well, and they are looking at three main schools.

"We are tight," Smith said of the relationship with his teammate. "We talk about playing at the same school together. Right now he has a couple of more offers than me. He has schools like LSU and Texas Tech."

"He is looking at A&M, Oklahoma, or LSU too. At least that is what I am thinking."
