Steve Smith, 6-1, 180 pound wide receiver from Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft was going to take an unofficial visit to Oregon last weekend but wasn't able to make it. He did set an official date however and also has trip dates with Tennessee and Texas.
"We're going to Texas October 4, Oregon October 25 and Tennessee November 8," Smith's father Steve Sr. said. "We were going to take an official to Notre Dame this weekend when they play Michigan but we couldn't get it worked out so we may have to get that set for another weekend. Michigan is another Steve wants to visit.
"He likes USC and UCLA a lot too but he won't visit either officially because he has been to both schools several times already."
USC still appears to be the team to beat and it wouldn't surprise us if Smith committed to the Trojans early without taking all of his visits. We'll be at Taft's season opener this Friday against a talented Crenshaw squad led by Div I recruits Brandon Mebane and Daymeion Hughes.
