What's on Smith's Wishlist?

Nov. 18 -- Roquan Smith has spent many Saturdays on the road this fall and even back in the summer and spring. He knows he has a big decision in front of him, so what will help him separate one school from the rest?

What will it take for a school to separate itself for Scout 100 linebacker Roquan Smith?

Schools coast-to-coast are in pursuit of the 6-foot-1, 209 pound star out of Montezuma (Ga.) Macon County.

Florida was once high on Smith's list, but it has faded a bit with the a new coach coming in for 2015. Georgia and UCLA are still definite official visits for Smith.

Auburn, LSU, Ole Miss, and USC among a few others are still in the race for one of the best in the country as well.

Smith was at UGA to see the Dawgs rout Auburn this past Saturday and it is visits like that, then the officials that will help him find what he is looking for.

"I am looking for a place that I feel at home," said Smith. That is very important to me. I am also looking for a place that I can get developed as a player, a place that I have a great relationship with the coaches, and a school that has shown me I am a priority.

"I want to go to a school where I know the people there will take care of me with or without football."

When he is on a campus, Smith is soaking everything in and seeing how he feels in that environment.

The four-star senior has a big decision in front of him and that will be announced early in February 2015 on national signing day.

"When I am on my official visits, I will be thinking about myself there and just seeing how it will feel. I think when it comes to signing day, the decision will be easy.

"Right now I am still thinking a lot, but once I take my official visits, I should know pretty clearly who the right school for me is," said Smith.

Scout ranks Smith as the No. 2 inside linebacker and the No. 66 overall prospect in the country.
