San Diego State coach Tony White believes he struck gold at John Curtis Christian earlier this year…
Aztecs pushing for Smith
"I think they like our attitude down here, it's different from the west coast," Smith said about the Aztecs coaches hitting Louisiana hard.
San Diego State is the lone offer for Smith right now, but Louisiana Tech, Arizona State, and Houston have all expressed interest.
"San Diego State is recruiting me the hardest right now," Smith said. "I talk to Coach McDaniel, he said he's gonna give the phone to the rest of the staff next time I call. He keeps it real and he tells me about the other receivers they have coming in and about the program. He just keeps it real."
Last season, John Curtis finished number one in the country according to the MaxPreps Excellent 25 rankings. Much of the same is expected for this season. "We stay in the weight room every day. I work out with velocity and workout with the best DB's at our school and just compete everyday. It gets me better."
"From what everybody tells me, my biggest strength is being an outside receiver and going up and getting the ball. We really don't throw the ball that much as a team, so every chance we get we take advantage of it."
Smith's decision could be soon, or it might not be. He's not ready to set a date. "I wanna get it done at the end of summer, but I've also thought about doing it at the end of the season to see how my senior year goes," Smith added. "I don't care about location, it'll be a transition to play anywhere. I just want the chance to play, I know they've go two receivers committed, but I'm just looking for the chance to play."
"The only visit I'm gonna be making this summer is to San Diego State. It was supposed to be next week but the hotel is gonna be booked up for 4th of July so, it's gonna be sometime in July."
