But, according to Rick Wright of the Albuquerque Journal, Smith has decided to transfer from the school he committed to in order to play closer to home.

Another university who also recruiting Smith out of high school was Florida State which is just about 480 miles to the north of Hileah. Coincidence? Maybe.
We don't know exactly where Smith is going to land or even if he is going to enroll at an SEC school to finish out the final three college years. The 6-foot-3 273 pound lineman had 14 tackles in 12 games last season for a team who finished with a horrendous 1-11 record last season.
If the young defensive tackle wants to be a star and wants to be noticed by NFL scouts, maybe this was a move which will do him some good down the road.
