Louisville (Ken.) Waggener running back/cornerback Alfonso Smith has taken one official visit and wants to take a few more before deciding. So are his two leaders the same?
"Yes, it's Boston College and Kentucky," said the 6-foot-1, 180-pounder. "Those are the two I know the most. I took an official visit to Boston College earlier this season and I've been to a bunch of Kentucky games. I want a chance to compete early."
Smith, who has an estimated 500 yards on the ground and three touchdowns in six games, is also considering some other schools.
"Louisville is back in it now," he said. "They're looking really good. Kentucky, Indiana and Miami (Ohio) are also up there. I'm visiting Kentucky and Indiana on back-to-back weekends in December and might visit Miami (Ohio) and maybe Louisville. I've been to all the schools already, but official visits are different."
Smith knows that both of his favorites have young players at running back.
"BC has a bunch of young guys taking turns there and Kentucky has a freshman seeing time," he said. "It will be a big factor because I want to play running back and I want to play early. We'll see how it all shakes out."
