Garden City, Kan., three-star receiver Brodrick Smith is set for his first official visit of the season this weekend. The 6-foot-3, 200-pounder is really looking forward to it, but make no mistake there is a team that sits on top of Smith's list.
"I'm getting on the plane to go to Arizona in the morning," Smith said.
"I can't wait to get down there and see what it's like."
Smith is being recruited for Arizona by Michael Smith, who is definitely familiar with Kansas prospects from his time as an assistant coach at K-State.
Speaking of K-State, the Wildcats still remain high on Smith's list. But before he makes a final decision, he's also going to take an official visit to Wyoming on Nov. 9 and then Minnesota the week after.
"I'm going to announce my decision on Dec. 1," Smith said. "I'm still leaning toward Kansas State. They're my top team. They were the first to offer me, and they've been recruiting me the hardest all along. I talk to the coaches at K-State every Sunday night for about 30 minutes.
"I talk to all the coaches, and that's something I really like. They just pass the phone around, and I talk to them quite a bit."
Smith said he spends most of the time on the phone with recruiting coordinator Matt Wallerstedt, receiver coach Dave Brock, his area recruiter Tim McCarty and offensive coordinator James Franklin.
Smith has climbed up the rankings faster than any other prospect in Kansas this season. Playing quarterback this season, he rushed for around 1,600 yards and 18 touchdowns. He currently ranks as the nation's No. 66 receiver and the No. 5 player in the state.
