For the Smith family it will be interesting to see what colors they will be wearing to the game.
"My brother and I will be talking a little smack to each other before the game," the younger Smith told PonyStampede.com in a recent interview. "Bencil has prepared me for the summer session, workouts haven't been that bad yet, and I came in ready to go."
Smith, who will play corner for SMU, started the second summer session two weeks ago.
"The transition has been good so far," Smith said. "The older guys on the team have taken me under their wing and are showing me the ropes."
One of the major differences that Smith is seeing is the speed of the game.
"It's a lot different at this level," Smith said. "I'm adjusting well; I'm excited about being here."
With classes already underway, Smith didn't realize that summer classes could be so taxing.
"They are intense," Smith said. "They started out a little rough, but things are starting to go better in the classroom. It's all about being responsible."
SMU was Smith's only offer, but the standout defender grew up cheering for the Mustangs.
"We have a lot of family history at SMU," Smith said. "My father Arthur played here in the late 70's and the early 80's, my uncles Anthony and Gary Smith played here and James Mobley is also an uncle of mine."
Smith has been impressed with the new coaching staff and is very happy he chose SMU.
"When the new coaching staff got here I knew this was the place for me," Smith said. "Coach (June) Jones is a great coach, the new coaching staff really knows what they are talking about."
