On the Recruiting Trail with '17 Shi Smith

Class of 2017 ATH Shi Smith scored two touchdowns and had an interception in Friday night’s homecoming game for Union County High School in Union, S.C. The wide receiver has been a name to know since attending summer camps, and already has a Southeastern Conference offer on the table. Check out which schools have Smith's attention.

Standing 5-foot-11 at 170 pounds, wide receiver Shi Smith is explosive on the field. In Friday night’s Homecoming game for Union County High School, Smith played safety for the Yellow Jackets.

“He recently started playing safety so I have to kinda pick and choose when to use him,” said wide receivers coach Cameron Willis of Union Co. High School.

Smith said he is up to 225 pounds on bench press in the weight room.

Smith’s athletic ability on the field has caught the attention of other schools like Auburn and Clemson. He received his first scholarship offer from the Gamecocks.

Former South Carolina player Steve Taneyhill is now the head coach at Union County, and being a South Carolina native, Smith said he’s always been a Gamecock fan. Take a look at our exclusive interview with Smith.
