Shannon Smith talks about his visit to Southern Miss

Northeast Oklahoma JuCo 6'4 WR Shannon Smith took a visit to Southern Miss this weekend for an official to see the football game against UTEP.  

The talented receiver had an outstanding regular season at the JuCo level and now is narrowing down his options as he looks toward playing at the next level.  

Southern Miss is certainly high on the list.  

"I came in Friday for an official visit and everything went real well," Smith told

"I enjoyed everything.  I liked all the coaches and felt very comfortable with them and the team.  Even though it was a rainy weekend, I really enjoyed it."

Smith, who will graduate in December, said the coaches made him feel at home on his visit.

"I got to eat dinner with them just as I would with my family," he said.

"They were telling me about the school academically and football wise.  They were letting me know how I can develop more as a player."

After the visit, Smith said Southern Miss is right at the top of his list.

"Yes sir, most definiately," he added.  

The Eagles added a commitment over the weekend from East MS CC WR Allenzae Staggers.  You can find that interview here:
