"I had about 60 tackles, 20 TFLs, 16 sacks, 12 pressures, 4 tipped passes, 5 forced fumbles and 1 fumble recovery," Smith said.
In our last Chris Smith junior report, IT had Smith with a 300 bench, 450 squat, 305 power clean, 285 incline bench.
Smith said the 305-pound power clean was actually a 305-pound hang clean. Also said that his bench is up to 320 and that his incline is now at 295.
Also in our last report, IT discovered that Smith, a projected DE, will be asked to move to an interior line spot.
Asked if any colleges are looking at him as a DT, Smith said, "Not really...every school that has offered and recruited me has only mentioned playing me as a DE. And that's where I want to play in college."
As for what he's working on to improve his skills, Smith told IT, "I'm just working out a lot. I'm trying to get up to 260-265-pounds and I'd like to get my forty time down to the 4.7-range. And if I work hard enough, I think I could even get it to a high 4.6 one day."
"But the forty time isn't what I really need to improve," added Smith, who obviously knows the difference between football speed and forty time-speed. "But I'm working on my quickness and just trying to improve my footwork. That's where I know I can make myself even better. And I think if I do that, I'll improve my forty time too."
"I'll be going to the Nike camp," Smith told IT. "And I'd like to make the OU, A&M and Texas one-day camps."
Smith has a top 8 right now: Texas, A&M, OU, Texas Tech, SMU, K-State, LSU, Iowa.
We'll have his decision timeframe and comments on the schools above in this week's installment of the Inside Scoop.
