It was once reported here on nkysportworld.com and throughout websites across the country that prized University of Cincinnati football recruit Alex Smith had decommited recently from the program. Im getting word out of the University of Cincinnati and from Alex Smith that this is not the case. Smith caused a stir a few weeks ago when he stated that he wished to visit other schools. However, he is still committed to the University of Cincinnati. Apparently, Smith is still being heavily recruited by schools such as Michigan and Ohio State (find that interesting and rather low since he has committed). Recently, he stated he wished to visit these schools just to ensure that UC is the right place. This does not mean that Smith will be a Bearcat come 2010, however, Smith is STILL COMMITED TO UC.
Alex Smith, a soon to be senior at Lakota West High School in Cincinnati, is widely regarded as one of the top 10 tight ends in the class of 2010. Many believe that star teammate, Jordan Hicks, will follow Smith wherever he chooses to go. Brian Kelly has his work cut out for him if he wants to keep Smith. Stay tuned for further details as they occur.
