What was his favorite part?
"On Saturday morning they took us to the stadium. They had a jersey with my name on it and I got to put it on. They announced my name over the loudspeaker and I got to run out behind the Ramblin Wreck Car. It just made me imagine myself there in front of 60,000 people."
What did he think about the atmosphere at Georgia Tech?
"I'm from a big city (Tampa, FL). I like the whole feel of a big town, and Atlanta has anything you could ever want to do."
Tampa Jesuit has sent many players to the Flats in it's history such as Goose Godsey, and Will Glover. What does Smith think about this relationship?
"Jesuit and Georgia Tech really stand for the same things. Poise, character, and class. It's a perfect fit."
Smith went on to add that he has a visit scheduled to South Florida on January 16th, but he is not sure if the Bull's coaches will still want him to come now that he's committed to the Yellow Jackets.
