2004 Media Guide: Fine all-around athlete who loves to hit and play run support … could conceivably figure in with the special teams this year while vying for a spot in the rotation at safety … has a couple of talented players ahead of him in returnees Nate Salley and Brandon Mitchell and should benefit greatly from understudying those two standouts … has explosive closing speed and good ball skills … knows where the ball is (eight interceptions for 182 yards last year).
High School: Won All-Ohio honors as a senior, helping Beechcroft to a 9-3 record and a berth in the state playoffs … listed as the state’s 11th-best prospect by The Ohio Football Recruiting News … had six interceptions, two of which he returned for touchdowns, and 50 tackles as a junior, winning all-city honors … listed by Rivals.com as the 17th-best safety prospect in the nation … SuperPrep listed him as the 30th-best player in the Midwest … seventh-best safety prospect by TheInsiders.com … has 4.4 speed … also played basketball and averaged 16.0 points per game at guard … would like to play basketball for the Buckeyes.
Personal: Is the son of Raymond Smith and Lori Welch.
