Four Star Offensive Tackle Takes Visits

Owings Mills (MD) offensive tackle Donovan Smith, one of the top offensive linemen still on the board, continues to take some unofficial visits to the schools that have offered him.

The most recent visit for Donovan Smith, was a trip to UConn. The Huskies, he says, are one of the schools that keep the closest contact with him.

"The last unofficial was UConn, back in early June," Smith said. "I went down there, stayed up there for a day or two. That was my last unofficial. The facilities are great. They have a beautiful campus--it's nice and compact. The most you'd have to walk anywhere, is ten minutes. It's a good school."

Clark added that he has stayed in good contact with UConn assistant Joe Moorhead and head coach Randy Edsall.

Up next, a few more stops--one north, a few south of his house, with one stop on the way back.

"I'm planning on getting out to Penn State," Smith said. "After that, I'm going down to North Carolina and Duke. On the way back, I'll make a stop at Virginia. I'm not sure yet. I'll kind of take it, depending on how far I feel like driving."

Smith also said Pittsburgh is still in the mix, and that he'd like to get back to Pittsburgh as well.

"Yeah, they're definitely in the mix," Smith said. "I'm definitely trying to get back up there if I can. It might be an official stop, but I want to get back up there."

Smith also noted that he enjoyed his most recent trip to Pittsburgh, which came back in the spring.

"It was great," Smith said. "I went up there for spring practice. (Receivers) coach (Scott) Turner and (offensive line) coach (Tony) Wise showed me around. I stayed for practice. I got to see the guys in action. I got to see the Cathedral of Learning, and walked around there."

And, how did he cap off his visit to Pittsburgh?

"I had to stop at Primanti's," Smith said. "You have to have one of them sandwiches. I could eat those all day, but that's probably not good for you."
