Cincinnati (Ohio) Colerain offensive lineman Connor Smith is one of the top three offensive line prospects in the Buckeye State and one of the top ten prospects overall. So the fact that his scholarship offer total is rising should not be surprising.
"Ohio State offered me on signing day," Connor said. "Boston College and Miami of Ohio have offered now too. But I'm not looking at those two too much.
"I went to Ohio State's junior day. And I made it up to Michigan's junior day. I liked them both. They both have great facilities. I really didn't like one better than the other."
In early February Smith said he was mainly thinking about the Buckeyes and Wolverines.
"I have a few more now," Smith said. "LSU, Florida, and Auburn. Those are people writing me. But I really don't think I want to go too far away.
"Really, I don't have one school that sticks out.
"I'll definitely commit before the football season. Probably before the school year is out. But I'm not going to rush it."
The 6-foot-6 and 300 pound Smith has been a varsity starter at offensive tackle since his sophomore year. During his junior season he helped pave the way for his team's strong running game. It was that running game that nobody could stop as Colerain went a very dominating 15-0 including the big school state championship.
