Heavily recruited by former Bulls offensive coordinator Kerwin Bell, Smith verbally committed all the way back in April and eventually got fellow teammates Le’Vontae Camiel and Marquez Bell to join him in the 2020 class later that summer (Bell eventually decommitted and signed with AAC rival Cincinnati today).
A dual-threat lefty with strong arm, the north Florida QB led Columbia through a solid 2019 campaign in which they were ranked No. 1 in Class 6A for multiple weeks throughout the season. His senior stats through the air included 2,665 passing yards with a 55% completion percentage, 27 touchdowns, eight interceptions and a QB rating of 106.7. On the ground, he rushed for an additional 316 yards and five TD’s.
Following the changeover from Charlie Strong’s staff to Jeff Scott, Smith opted to forego the early signing period and wait until February to sign. After receiving an in-home visit from Scott and visiting campus again this past weekend, he officially solidified himself as a Bull today, joining Miami Central’s Katravis Marsh as Scott’s QB prospects for this class.
