Stephon, a 6-foot-0, 190-pound running back/wide receiver, currently has offers from Kansas State, Tulsa, Louisiana-Lafayette, and ULM - and he's hearing from several other schools, including SMU, LSU, Arkansas State, Arkansas, and Southern Miss.
"It feels good," said Stephon in regard to working with his new teammates. "I catch on easy to learning new things. Stephen and I went to school with most of these guys at Slidell Junior High. I like their offense. It's a spread offense that's very similar to what we ran at St. Paul's. It's probably a little more spread than what St. Paul's runs.
"The coaches want me to play slot receiver and running back. They want me to catch the football a good bit. We have a good running back named Jonathan Miles. He's big and fast and is a Division I player. We should be pretty good and I think we can win the district if we can get past St. Paul's."
Stephen Smith, who has a written offer from Kansas State, will play cornerback for his new team.
"Stephen likes it (at Slidell)," said Stephon of his brother. "He likes it a lot. He's doing some 7-on-7 stuff and the coach told Stephen that he has some of the best footwork that the coach has ever seen."
Stephon is being recruited by some schools as a running back and by others as a wide receiver. If you ask him which position he prefers the best, you'll get a diplomatic response.
"I'll play either position," he said. "Whatever I can do to be an asset to the team."
Does he have a favorite school at this point?
"Kansas State is my leader right now," Smith said. "I would feel good about it, if I decide to go there. It's a good environment. My mom talks to my recruiter, Coach Smith, at least once a week.
"I talk to Coach Norvell from Tulsa almost every day. I might go visit Louisiana-Lafayette's camp this Saturday. I pulled my groin and so I won't be doing any drills, but their coaches want me to come. I haven't talked to anyone from ULM since the last week of school, but I assume that the offer is still on the table."
St. Paul's, which has two of the top players in the state in defensive tackle Mickey Johnson and wide receiver Jermaine Sams, was expected to challenge West Monroe for the 5A state title, but now the Wolves will have to carry on without the services of the Smith twins. In fact, the Wolves could now be in for a dogfight to win district, now that Stephon and Stephen Smith will be suiting up for Slidell.
