Smith set to travel with teammate

Charles Smith is a 6-1, 175-pound athlete from La Mesa (Calif.) Helix and Charles is set on where he's taking his official visit this weekend. And it's going to be a hectic weekend for Smith, as Helix is still in the throes of their playoff schedule. But Charles will have a friendly face with him, and that will certainly help.

"I'm looking forward to it," Smith told about his official visit to Washington this weekend. "The plan right now is me and Reggie (Bush) coming out there together. But right now I'm just focused on the last few playoff games. We play one of our league rivals this Friday, Monte Vista."

Smith and his family have been entertaining coaches this week. "Coach (Brent) Myers will be here on Thursday," Charles said. "And an Arizona State coach came by yesterday. That's about it. They are OK. The coaches usually talk more to my parents than me. I didn't really have any questions, but my parents did, so they got a lot of their questions answered."

We'll be in touch with Charles when he gets back from his visit. Right now, Oregon and Washington are neck and neck for his services. Smith has already taken an official visit to Oregon.
