Smith Narrows It Down

Peachtree Ridge HS talented defensive back Joe Smith has narrowed his recruiting down to two schools. He talked about the latest with GoldenEaglePride.com.

Joe Smith, S, from Peachtree Ridge HS in Georgia was close to making his commitment known last week.

It was his parents, however, that wanted him to wait and make absolute sure he knew before he made u his mind. Smith wouldn't tip his hand as to which way he was leaning.

"I had the commit date set last week, but my parents decided to push things back a little bit," Smith told GoldenEaglePride.com.

"I'm not sure when I'll commit now."

Smith does know for now he's down to two schools.

"Western Kentucky offered me," he said. "As of right now, I'm down to Southern Miss and Western Kentucky."

Smith decided against taking in a bunch of camps this year. Instead, he just wanted to make sure he was working on his own game at home.

"I wish I could have but I really just wanted to focus on me getting better," he said. "For my senior year, that's all I'm focused on.

"I've been doing a ton of speed and agility work with my uncle who played college ball."

Smith also has offers from UAB and South Alabama.
