|A weapon on offense, defense, and special teams, Smith is an electrifying athlete with the ball in his hands. He has the quickness and size to be a lockdown corner, but playing receiver is not out of the question. He's a dynamite punt returner that should see the ball even if he ends up on defense in college. Scott Kennedy - Scout.com|
|Smith had 38 tackles and four interceptions during his senior season. He was honored with Mobile-Press Register's Super Southeast 120 (#15), Georgia Magazine All-State, Parade All-American, AJC First Team 3A All-State (Specialist), GSWA 3A All-State First Team DB, Orlando Sentinel's All-Southern Team (GA), Gatorade Player of the Year, selected to the Under Armour All-American Game.
