Texas OL battles back from injury

The offer count has stayed relatively the same for two-star offensive tackle Kyle Smith of Mansfield (Texas) Summit but Smith thinks that more offers could be coming from a number of schools that appear interested.
New Mexico State and Tulane broke the ice with their offers and now Utah, Texas A&M, Wisconsin, and others have been contacting him in the month of September. Those schools also could be adding their name to the offer list for the 6-foot-6, 280-pound tackle.
"There are a lot of schools that are saying that they're interested, but I tore my hamstring during the spring so they need to see me in a few games this year," Smith said. "We've played three so far and I'll start sending out that tape soon now that I feel better."
Smith says he is undecided about favorites because he has not yet visited any of the schools. Those trips are being mulled over at this time.
"I'm kind of searching my options on who I want to go to," Smith said. "Probably Texas Tech and maybe Utah are the first ones that come to mind. They showed interest really early and my dad went to Tech. I like Lubbock a lot."
As for a decision, that time frame is up in the air.
"I'm not really sure," he said. "I'm just trying to dig through it all. It's kind of early right now. I've got to start researching and figure out the places that I want to see first, then I'll know better when I'll be ready to commit."
