Top 100 team and the No. 12 wide receiver in the nation, has

Smith (6-3, 175, 4.5) also has a visit in place for
Tennessee on Jan. 17. Vols assistant Steve Caldwell was in the home late
last week for a visit.

"I don't have a favorite right now," he said.

207 yards and a touchdown and also rushed for another score.
