"I'm still trying to figure out what I want to do," said Reggie Smith regarding his timetable for paring his list. "I might narrow it down a little more in a few weeks. But, right now, I'm still concentrating on my senior season."
Asked about the five Big 12 teams in contention for his services, Smith gave us a few sentences to analyze and dissect while we await word, from him, on which teams can celebrate surviving his first cut. Until then, let's take a look at what he had to say on the Big 5 from the Big 12...
Smith On A&M: "They had a big game this last week against Oklahoma State. I went to the game (as an Oklahoma State "unofficial" visitor) and saw (first-hand) that they're doing pretty good. I thought it would be a good game.
Dean: Follow-up question. Did that give the Aggies any edge in terms of landing a commitment from you?
Smith: "(A&M) showed me they're doin' pretty good. I saw their DBs step up and stop the run. Seems like a good place to be right now."
Smith On K-State: "I like their special teams a lot. And, I like the type of coverages they run in the secondary."
On Nebraska: "I like that they made a change. Later on, they should get a lot better. Especially once they get a good passing QB in there."
On Oklahoma: "They compete every year. And it seems like they're always gettin' better and better. You always got to think about (OU)."
On Oklahoma State: "It looks like they'll be losing a few defensive backs. It would be a good time to come in and possibly play early."
Additional Note: Smith said his parents support him 100 percent and that they do not have a preference...
"They said whatever makes me happy. So, I guess it's on me. I think I'll just go where ever I feel at home."
