"I'd say that UCLA is recruiting me the hardest," said Smith. "I was at their Junior Day too. They're just checking my transcripts and they said they'll offer."
Smith said that he didn't have a real leader, that he's trying to remain wide open.
"I want to look around first and take some time," said Smith. "But I like USC and UCLA a lot right now. I'm going to probably go to their camps this summer."
Smith attended a handful of UCLA home games this fall and also saw USC in action when they played at the Rose Bowl. It was at USC, though, that he first started receiving notice.
At the Los Angeles Nike Camp last spring, at USC, Smith was named MVP of the Camp, a high honor for the then-sophomore.
"Yeah, that was fun," said Smith. "I'm going back there again in April."
An all-CIF pick and all-state underclass selection in 2006 as an offensive lineman, Smith said he's got a preference of where he wants to play on the line.
"I want to play tackle," said Smith.
