Defensive back Chris Smith of South Pointe will hit the road Friday to begin his summer camp adventures.
Smith is going to Wake Forest Friday and Duke Sunday. He will also attend USC’s Showcase Camp June 13, as well as camps at North Carolina and East Carolina.
Smith holds offers from USC, Old Dominion, Mercer, Charlotte, Furman, Coastal Carolina, Campbell, Gardner-Webb, Miami of Ohio, Air Force, Eastern Michigan, James Madison and SC State. USC has been his favorite and the possibility of a commitment at the upcoming camp does exist.
“They are still recruiting me hard,” Smith said. “It (a commitment) just depends on the feel that I have. This will be my first time visiting as a recruit. I may let it play out to the beginning of the season. But USC is clearly ahead of everybody else.”
The Gamecocks like Smith as a cornerback. Last season he had 71 tackles with 5 interceptions. He also played with the ball in his hands and accounted for 600 all purpose yards along with 10 pass receptions.
