Antavio Smith didn't get to make the combines this spring because originally thought as a nagging groin injury turned into a sports hernia operation. Smith is recovering nicely, and he plans to attend several camps this summer.
"I am doing well," Smith said. "I have been running again for a good while. I actually ran a 4.4 last week, so I think I'm recovering well."
Smith is receiving interest from schools around the South, and beyond.
"I am hearing from Arkansas, Penn State, Florida State, Auburn, Alabama, Mississippi State, Middle Tennessee, Memphis, South Alabama, JSU and ASU," he said.
"I have talked to coaches from Auburn, Alabama, South Alabama and Mississippi State. All the schools recruiting me have invited me to visit, and come to camp. They are waiting to see how my recovery goes, and that's why they want to see me in camp," Smith explained.
Smith also discussed his upcoming senior season.
"I really like everything right now. I like our offense this coming season. We are going to run the Wing T, and our defense will always bring it. I like the team, and I believe we will have a good season if we work hard," he concluded.
