OL Mitch Smothers (6-4 290) of Springdale, AK committed to Arkansas on June 1 but says he is leaving open the possibility of taking other visits. "I may still visit all of the schools that have offered me that I have not visited yet," said Smothers.
That includes USC. His offers are from USC, Arkansas, Auburn, Alabama, UCLA, Ole Miss, Mississippi State, Tulsa, Kentucky, and Missouri. Smothers had shown interest earlier this summer in visiting USC and says he continues to hear from the Gamecocks.
His only camp this summer has been a team camp at Tulsa and he is looking into other camps. "I'm not sure which camps I will go to," he said.
Smothers says his commitment is fairly strong. "I just thought the time was right (to commit)," said Smothers. "I felt like I had all of the information I needed and that Arkansas was the right place for me."
