Four star dual-threat quarterback Troy Smith (6'1 200 4.6) from Cleveland Glenville (OH) had a fine opening game this past weekend. He passed for 135 yards and one score and rushed for 80 yards and another touchdown. Smith's team beat Mentor 26-13. Previously Smith named West Virginia as his leader with Virginia Tech second. That has changed slightly.
"West Virginia is still my favorite," Smith said. "Probably Michigan State is second now. Ohio State and Virginia Tech are the other two. Those are the four main schools I'm looking at, but I'm still open to some others. All of them except Virginia Tech have offered me. I'm going to go to the West Virginia-Virginia Tech game. I like West Virginia best because of their coaching staff and they run the spread offense. But I'm going to wait and take official visits. The only one I have set up right now is West Virginia the first weekend in December (December 7th).
