Branden Smith is an outstanding prospect from the Peach State. Smith, 5-11 and 175 pounds, is from Atlanta (Ga.) Booker T. Washington High School. Smith, a four-star prospect at the cornerback position, is completely mum in terms of recruiting.
"They (colleges) are all the same to me right now," Smith said. "I am taking things slowly because I know this is a hard decision. My plan is to narrow things down in the middle of the fall. That's all I can really say."
According to Smith he is sitting on 10 scholarship offers at this time. "It's been humbling to me and quite surprising, that some of these schools have offered. Georgia was first and Maryland just offered."
So far Smith has seen Georgia, Georgia Tech, Clemson and Auburn. He would like to attend some camps this summer.
"I would like to see Clemson, Auburn, Florida, Alabama and Georgia. I just want to get to know these coaches. It's important to me that the coaches get along with the players and that the players all get along with eachother. Playing time will also be important to me."
Washington High School just started their spring practice but Smith is absent for the time being. He qualified for the state track meet in the 100 and 4x100.
"It's killing me not to be practicing with my teammates but everyone has been very supportive to me. The state track meet is May 9th and 10th and I will be practicing (football) the next day."
