Dwight Smith Adds Big 12 Offer

Interest is picking up for Swainsboro defensive end Dwight Smith. The 6-foot-2, 250 pounder recently added three more offers including one from a school in the Big 12 Conference.

"I think I had a pretty good senior season," said Dwight Smith, a defensive end prospect from Swainsboro. "This was really my coming out year. I mean stat wise, it was my best season. I finished with 89 tackles, 17 for loss and 7 sacks."

Iowa State, Troy and UAB are the latest to offer Smith who already held offers from Furman, Middle Tennessee, Georgia Southern and Fort Valley State.

He is a very active and competitive defensive end who consistently goes all out on every snap. However, he does have the body frame to add more weight and I think he could play inside on the next level.

Smith is very athletic for his size (6-2,249) and currently starts at power forward for the undefeated Swainsboro basketball team.

"We're playing good basketball right now," said Smith. "So far, were undefeated with a big 99-97 win over Wilkinson County. I'm averaging about 8 points and 10 rebounds per game."

Smith said he plans to take his offical visits in January to Middle Tennessee, Troy, UAB and Iowa State. He has already qualified academically claiming a 1550 on the SAT and a 3.3 GPA.

"I'll be looking for a school that has a good football atmosphere," he said. "I think a good education will also be an important factor when I make my decision."

Clemson is showing a lot of interest as well as Louisville, Mississippi State and South Carolina.
