Prior to ETSU: Smith is a left-handed hitting infielder who was one of the top players in the Nashville area. He was named to the Tennessee Baseball Coaches Association All-Star team this summer as a shortstop. His father played at Southern Mississippi University and was a scout for a number of MLB organizations later in his career. Smith is a good defender and is athletic enough to play anywhere on the field. We anticipate Smith to become an excellent college hitter, and he has a great frame and is a strong kid. Smith will compete for a spot in our infield as a freshman.
