The following information was revealed during our interview with Chris Smelley:
How is your season going? "We are 10-0. I
have over 2, 800 yards passing , 45 TD's, and 3 int's."
You have taken
your official visit to Ole Miss; set up anymore? "I am still working on getting
up to Louisville. I am taking one up there for sure, but I do not have a date
set in stone. Other than that, I have not set up any."
What do you
like about Louisville? "I know Louisville is always at the top in the nation
in offense every year. They have a great coach. That is a big draw for them. They
are just a good school. Everyone I have talked to said it is a great school and
a great place to play."
Been anywhere unofficially? "I have not
been anywhere since I went to the Ole Miss game. I just have not had the time."
colleges are keeping in weekly contact? "All of the schools that offered
me are in contact with me. I have been talking to South Carolina and Alabama a
lot lately too."
And your offers are? "Gosh, lets see, Ole Miss,
Louisville, LSU, Tulane, Memphis, Oregon. Those are the ones that come off of
the top of my head."
How does it feel to have that many options? "It
kind of makes you secure knowing you have that many choices. It kind of takes
off the pressure off a little bit."
Some people believe that if Alabama
were to offer you; that is where you would end up. Is this true? "No, that
is definitely not true. I still want to take some visits and look at my options.
If they were to offer me today, I would not accept it on the spot."
you accept their offer after you took all of your visits? "Not unless it
was the best fit for me."
Where does Ole Miss fall in your pecking
order? "The same as they have always been. I like them a lot, a whole lot.
They are one of my top schools. After I get done taking all of my visits, if they
are where they are right now, I would end up there. I could definitely see myself
playing for Coach Mazzone (at Ole Miss)."
Talk about South Carolina;
are they staying in constant contact? "Yea, they have been contacting my
coach about me. And they call me also. Yea, they are showing me a lot of interest."
