Prep WR takes second official visit

Kent (Conn.) Kent School wide receiver Tevaun Smith took his second straight official visit this past weekend. The 6-foot-2, 186-pounder made the trek to Philadelphia for a visit to Temple.
"It was good, I liked it," he said. "I just got a tour around the school, I got to see practice and then got to spend time with the players.
"I was hosted by a couple of freshmen, it was cool to see how the freshmen live in college."
Much of the visit for Smith was time he spent with the coaching staff.
"They were cool as well, I mostly spent time with the wide receivers coach," he said. "They were just interested and explained how they'd use me on the offensive side of the ball and special teams with my athletic ability. They felt I can do well in their offense."
How did the visit compare to a trip a week ago to Connecticut?
"I liked both coaching staffs," he said. "For both of the schools the coaches were cool and the players were cool, the thing about Connecticut was the facilities. I really liked them, but I know in the next few months Temple is getting new facilities and everything there is going to be great, so we'll see what happens with that."
Meanwhile, Smith has a third official coming this weekend to Iowa.
"I have Iowa next weekend and they seem pretty interested," he said. "They told me they were going to offer me when I get down to the campus."
What does he want to see on the trip to the Midwest?
"I'm just hoping to see how the players get along with the coaches like at every other school. Also, I want to see what they have to offer academically and facilities wise. I want to see how I fit into their offense too."
A prep school prospect, Smith plans to stay the entire year at Kent School. With that fact, he is nowhere close to a decision.
"No, I'm trying to keep all my doors open, I have no favorites as of now," he said. "I'm getting other interest from Syracuse, NC State and Miami (Ohio)."
Originally coming from Toronto, Canada, Smith posted well over 1,000 all-purpose yards and 15 touchdowns this season.
"We went undefeated until the championship game," he said. "Coming from Canada, the football field is much bigger up there. Down here the field is really small, but it started to feel wider and wider as I played this season. I was able to adjust pretty well and I got used to the game being much quicker. I was able to use more of my speed and ability."
