Scouting Report

Evaluated 04/30/2024

Greg Biggins
Greg Biggins National Recruiting Analyst

Smith is a big quarterback who looks all of 6-5, 200 pounds and has a very live arm. He’s still growing into his body but can already make a lot of college-level throws and it’s exciting to envision where his game will be at in a few years. He has made some nice strides over the last year and looks more fluid in his throwing motion and has improved as an athlete as well. He's a pure pocket guy but shows some escapability and can make accurate throws rolling right or left outside the pocket. He has very good deep ball accuracy, can change speeds and understands when to put more touch on a throw and when he needs to use a little more gas. He has one of the higher ceilings in this year's class and projects as a high Power 4 prospect.
