Smith Looking For His Spot
Posted Mar 3, 2008

Randy Smith had a hand in over one-hundred tackles during his junior season. The 6-1, 195 pounder is looking to build on his stellar junior campaign in hopes of earning some division one opportunities.

"I started off playing a lot at outside linebacker," said Randy. "I guess I could play linebacker or safety in college, but I think I will probably play safety."

A quartet of southern schools have piqued Smith's early interest. One of those schools has the advantage of having a family member of Randy's already on their roster.

"Southern Miss, Alabama and Mississippi State are some schools I am looking at," said Smith. "I like Houston a lot too. My brother, E.J. Smith, is down there. He really likes it down there. Other then being apart from all of us, he says he's having the time of his life there."

Being the younger brother of division one athlete certainly has it's advantages. Randy watched with great interest when his brother went through the recruiting process two years ago.

"I know it takes a while to go through it all," said Randy. "He was real patient. He got a lot of letters for a long time and then he started getting some offers. It took a while for him to decide."

The younger Smith hopes that he has some options to consider when the time comes for him to make his college decision. His dream school would have an academic and an athletic program that Randy could excel in.

"I would like to find a school with a good education program," explained Randy. "If I don't go pro, I will have to have an education. I want to find a place with a good football program and a good education, so I can do what I need to do on and off the field."
