Kansas City (Mo.) Rockhurst defensive end Allan Smith has heard the talk around the Kansas City area himself and he wasn't sure where it was coming from. But, now football fans in the Boston area can rest easy.
"I've heard the same rumors myself about my not going to Boston College," the 6-foot-3, 205-pound Smith said. "But, that isn't true, I am solid with my decision to go to Boston College."
Smith early on trimmed his list to Boston College, Kansas and Missouri.
"Those were the three schools I was visiting," he said. "Kansas State was recruiting me early on, but we kind of lost track of communication with Kansas State. It has been two or three weeks since I spoke to them.
"They were checking with me to see if there was any interest in visiting and I decided that I was solid with my decision to go to Boston College."
