Rivals100 ATH sets first official

Rivals100 athlete Brandon Smith out of New Brunswick, N.J. has scheduled his first official visit. The 6-foot-3, 210-pounder discussed who he has scheduled a visit with along with his two leaders at this time.
"Recruiting is going pretty good," he said. "I had narrowed my list down to a top five, but that's no longer the case since I'm getting more offers still. I'm wide open to everybody right now.
"My most recent offer is from South Carolina. I've got about 30 offers and haven't actually talked to too many schools lately. Florida told me if I come down there for an unofficial they'll offer on the spot. I haven't heard as much from Florida State. Miami continues to sending me a lot of mail. If those schools offer that's great, but if not that fine too."

While he was reluctant to name a true leader, two schools appear to be sticking out for the four-star prospect.
"Wisconsin and Michigan kind of stand out," he said. "Both of them are just great schools.
"I've always watched Michigan growing up. I never thought I'd get the chance to play there. They have a great coaching staff and I think coach Carr will be there for the next few years. With Wisconsin, one of my boys Jonathan Casillas goes there. He tells me a lot about them and exactly how it is. The more he tells me, the more I'm interested and I haven't heard one bad thing from him. I know I can trust him, he's not just blowing smoke. I know they also have a great academic program."
Smith has scheduled one of his official visits so far.
"I have my first official setup for Michigan on September 21st," he said. "I haven't scheduled any other trips, but I probably will during the season."
Meanwhile, practice is just about to start up for the No. 3 prospect in the Garden State.
"We've just started to get our equipment and officially start practice on the 20th," he said. "We start so late because our first game is on September 15th.
"Practice up to this point has gone really well. I expect with the talent and team we have we can repeat again this year. My teammates are really coming together as one and getting better at every practice. I'm really proud of them."
