Pickerington (Ohio) Central safety Sebastian Smith's lone offer is from Indiana, but the Hoosiers are getting low at scholarships for the safety position in the 2012 class. That may force Smith to consider his options in the near future.
"I'm still in contact with Kevin Johns and Doug Mallory [at Indiana]," Smith said. "They are basically telling me they had Dawson Fletcher commit, who is another safety, and that they are only going to take one more. They are really interested in me for that spot, obviously."
With Indiana being his only scholarship offer, Smith understands the situation in Bloomington, but is not quite ready to make a move.

"I'm going to stay in contact with them and make sure everything is still going, but I'm going to wait a little bit longer… until the first few games, probably," he said. "We'll see what happens after that."
Smith is expecting attention from more college programs once the season starts. His school's first two games of the season will be played on national television, and Smith plans to showcase his talents.
"I play offense and defense," he said. "I don't take any plays off or play lazy. I play physical."
One team that Smith knows will be paying attention is Michigan State. Spartan's assistant coach Mike Tressel has been keeping tabs on the three-star prospect since last spring.
"Michigan State has been talking to me for a little while," Smith said. "They are basically saying they are really interested and looking forward to watching me play. They have been in the school to see me before. I haven't been up there yet, but they want me to come up there."
Smith was unable to make planned visits to West Virginia, Tennessee and Alabama for camps this summer due to schedule conflicts. He has not other trips planned before the start of his senior season.
