Westside WR keeps all options open

Westside WR Michael Smith is poised for a big season. With the 2007 season beginning, Smith will be the Wolves' primary receiver this year. On the recruiting circuit, he awaits the Division I offer he so longs for. Smith took the time to talk with TPI about his latest recruiting news.

Houston Westside wide receiver Michael Smith lit up several scoreboards last season. As the No. 2 (slot) receiver, Smith had 36 catches for 500 yards and six touchdowns. He also picked up 120 yards and five touchdowns rushing. 

Because of these numbers, college coaches responded. Smith is hearing from several powerhouse Division I programs these days, but he still awaits the offer.

"I don't have an offer yet, but I am hearing from some schools," Smith said. "Central Florida, Texas A&M, UNLV, and Fresno State have all contacted my by phone or text. My coach told me that Houston came down at the start of Spring and was asking about me."

According to Smith, he felt Houston was very close to offering him. But even so, he has no favorites right now. With a 6-1, 185-pound frame and 4.5 speed in the 40, Smith is confident he will soon get an offer.

"I'm looking pretty good these days," Smith said. "I caught three touchdown passes in our scrimmage against Cy Creek."

Smith and Wolves team will travel to play Texas City September 8.
