Recruiting: WR Brett Smith

The Ole Miss program is loaded with top-notch receivers such as Jason Armstead, Taye Biddle, Chris Collins, Mike Espy, Bill Flowers, and Mario Hill. Nevertheless, the pipeline must keep flowing if the quality is to be sustained over a long period. The Rebels have their eyes on several prospects both instate and out of state. One of the out of state wide receiver prospects is Brett Smith and he posted some gaudy statistics as a junior.

Smith, a 6-foot-1, 175-pounder from Warren, Arkansas, caught a whopping 106 passes last season. His receptions were good for 1,899 yards and 23 touchdowns. Smith also contributed six interceptions from his cornerback position. Interestingly, Smith will be playing a new position as a senior.

"I'll be playing quarterback this year," said Smith. "We open our season against Springdale in the Hooten's Classic at War Memorial Stadium in Little Rock."

Arkansas has already extended a scholarship offer to Smith. Other programs on his list are Florida, Michigan, Ohio State, Ole Miss, Tennessee, and UCLA.

Smith projects as a full qualifier with a 3.14 GPA and a score of 18 on the ACT. He also competes in basketball and averages 16 points per game.
