He camped at Colorado and was supposed to camp at UCLA, but a minor tweak in Colorado made UCLA simply an unofficial visit.
"I tweaked my knee a bit at Colorado, so I wasn't able to perform (at UCLA), but I still thought I had a decent visit meeting with the coaches and all," said Smith. "I had gotten their offer a few days ago."
Smith had been hoping for an offer from a California school for a while.
"UCLA is pretty nice," said Smith. "It was pretty much what I expected in California and a great location."
Smith got to spend time with several coaches, but two mostly.
"I spent most of my time with Coach (Rick) Neuheisel and Coach (Tim) Hundley," said Smith.
Smith is still planning to hit a few more schools up this summer before making a decision.
