Smyth hasn't received any offers yet, but is being recruited by Clemson,
Mississippi, South Carolina, and Arkansas.


"I don't have a favorite, but Clemson and Ole Miss are my top two
choices," Smyth said. "I will focus more on my choice after this season is
over."

Smyth made an unofficial visit to Clemson during the Tigers' big win
over Florida State.


"I really liked Clemson when I visited," Smyth said. "I figured they would
play a good game against Florida State, but I didn't think they would blow
them out like that. It was a great win for them."


Clemson assistant Dabo Swinney is recruiting Smyth for the Tigers.
