When the really talented players start getting noticed, offers start pouring in.
“It has been a blast,” Smith said. “A lot of coaches have been coming out to see me during spring practices. It’s been crazy and I’m just enjoying it right now.”
Smith holds offers from Bowling Green, Colorado State, Duke, Illinois, Louisiana-Lafayette, Louisiana-Monroe, New Mexico, Purdue, Texas State, Texas-San Antonio and Tulsa.
Smith likes SMU and not just because they were the first to offer him. He likes the idea of being a part of a rising team.
“They have a whole new coaching staff and I feel that Chad Morris is a really good coach,” Smith said. “He has always been a winning coach, so I feel that they will turn things around and win a lot of games. Eventually they will be playing for championships—they are on a come up.”
With SMU jumping on the Trelon Smith train early, they junior running back has had several chances to get to know the Mustangs’ coaching staff.
“I’ve talked to basically the whole coaching staff,” he said. “They all came to see me and I’ve been to SMU twice. They are all really good coaches. Every time I am around them we have a good time. They are just great guys.”
With spring football about to wrap up and the school year coming to a close, Smith is beginning to plan his summer and where he might want to visit.
“I’ll be going to SMU for my third time,” he said. “And then I’ll maybe see about going to Colorado State. After that, I’ll just have to see what I can do to visit more schools.”
