The three-star prospect out of St. James High School announced on October 13th that he was committing to the University of Texas-San Antonio via Twitter.
Smith was on his official visit when he made the announcement, which made head coach Frank Wilson & his staff elated about the news. “I had my mind made up since the beginning of the season that I wanted to commit there,” Smith said. “My relationship with the coaching staff has been great, & that played a big role into why I was so comfortable committing to them. They call me almost everyday & we talked about more than just football.”
With 24 total offers, the dynamic playmaker knew he would have to really do his homework to make sure he found the right fit for the next four to five years. “This process has been fun, but at the same time I had to keep a level head through it all,” Smith said. “I really like a lot of the schools that were recruiting me, but when I was on my official at UTSA I felt like that’s where I needed to be. Coach Frank(Wilson) is different & he is somebody I feel like I can relate to.”
All throughout high school Smith has been asked to play quarterback, but he will be a full time receiver & return specialist once he arrives on campus. One plus for Smith is that his former high school teammate Lowell Narcisse is currently the starting quarterback at UTSA. “I’m excited about the coach’s plan for me at receiver & in the return game,” he said. “Getting to catch balls from my big bro Lowell will be fun as well because we’re real familiar with each other.”
Smith still plans to take three more official visits before signing day to Colorado, Colorado St, & Southern Miss.
The UTSA coaching staff will have their work cut out for them until Smith signs on the dotted line on signing day with the type of year he is having. He has his team off to a 7-0 start & ranked number one in 3A. Smith is one of the most electrifying athletes in the state with the ball in his hands & he could easily start gaining traction from bigger schools before it’s all said & done.
