in Tennessee Vols Football Recruiting

Quayshun Smith (Tallahassee, FL/Godby High School) is an aggressive cornerback that doesn’t let his small size prevent him from making plays on the gridiron and instead tries to pack as big of a punch in his athletic frame.

“I think I can make a lot of plays on defense and can make all the big plays,” said the talented corner who sports offers from Arkansas and FIU while also hearing on a daily basis from Tennessee, Alabama, Florida, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, Wake Forest, and Louisville.

Smith also hears from Michigan State, Florida State, Central Florida, and South Florida.

For making a college choice he isn’t in any hurry however.

“I am going to wait out this process simply because I don’t want to jump the gun and make a choice too soon,” explained Smith.

Becuase of his choice to hold off on a decision Smith and the Vols coaching staff will have a great chance to get to know one another.

“I get a lot of mail and e-mail from the staff but nothing over the phone or anything but my high school football coach actually told me a bit ago that the staff has called him and that they really like me and are just checking out a few more things with me before offering,” said Smith. “My coach told me an offer could be coming really shortly.”

Even without an offer from the Vols Smith holds them in high regard.

“I like them alot,” admitted the talented corner. “Eric Berry went there and he is my favorite player of all time and they also seem to be good every year and they are also a good school for eduction. I want to majaor in physical therapy and I’ve heard good things from Tennessee on that area.”

Smith has a very busy summer planned already and could a visit to Tennessee be in the works?

“My mom and I have talked and we are looking Alabama, Florida, FIU, and Central Florida so far and I think we are going to add some more if we can and Tennessee will be one we will try and look at,” explained Smith.

Smith will have three important areas to look for when picking a college.

“I want to make sure they have a good academic area for my major, have a coaching staff that really cares about you on and off the field, and I want to fit a defensive style that suits my abilities,” explained Smith.

As a junior Smith recorded 52 tackles, two INTs, and scored one touchdown.
