"Right now I am really working hard on all of my academics," said Smith. "That is my main focus right now.
"I am working hard to get everything together, so I can get out in December."
A school close to his Akron home is monitoring his academic progress pretty closely.
"I have been talking with them some and they told me that if get all of my work done and can get out in December that they are probably going to offer me."
The Buckeyes' proximity to Smith's home base would certainly help their cause should they elect to offer.
The talented wide out reports that a school close to his current location appears to be making him a priority in their recruiting efforts.
"Mississippi State is really recruiting me hard," said Smith. "Coach told me that they are losing five receivers and that they need a big play receiver like me to come in and play early.
"I am really just learning about them, but they act like they really want me to come in and be a part of their program."
Smith reports that he is in no hurry to end his recruitment and that he is going to take his time with his deliberations.
"I am pretty happy with how everything is going right now," said Smith. "I already have a lot of offers and there are a lot of schools interested in me.
"I am going to take my time with everything and be sure I get all of my class work together, so I can get out in December."
