Smith twins visit Kansas State

Twin brothers Stephen and Stephon Smith each have scholarship offers from Kansas State, and the senior tandem took an unofficial visit to watch the Wildcats recently.

"It was fun to go and watch the game, although we were late and missed the campus tour," said Stephen Smith of Slidell High School in regard to his unofficial visit to Manhattan a week ago.

Stephen, a cornerback, and Stephon, a running back/wide receiver, have a handful of scholarship offers between the two of them, but Kansas State is the only program that has offered both.

Thus, it's no surprise that the Wildcats are the top school for the twins, and it also helps that Kansas State already has secured a verbal from another Slidell prospect, QB Daniel Sams of Salmen High School.

In fact, Salmen gave Slidell (2-1) and the Smiths their only loss of the season in a crosstown rivalry game a couple of weeks ago.

"Salmen is on a whole another level than other schools," said Smith of the 3-0 Spartans. "I had two tackles against Salmen, but they never threw in my direction.

"Last week, I had a 50-yard interception return for a touchdown (vs. John Ehret). We came out fast in that game. (Running back) Jonathan Miles and Stephon were doing their thing.

"On the pick six, we were playing soft coverage - in case they threw deep - with about three minutes left in the fourth quarter. I read the quarterback's eyes on a skinny post and intercepted it."

In the first week of the season, Smith had two tackles and broke up three passes in a 25-21 win over Holy Cross of New Orleans.
