Smith Decides on Bucky
"I committed on Saturday. My mom and I went up to Madison for a visit and we just really liked the campus, the city and the atmosphere that surrounds the football program at Wisconsin.
"Location was another reason why I chose Wisconsin. I want to have my family and friends to be able to come see me play.
"Wisconsin has real nice dorms and they're built so we'll have some privacy. I liked the facilities a lot especially the academic center. Lastly, the strength and conditioning coach really appealed to me."
Smith chose Wisconsin over Iowa State and others. The recruiting efforts for the Badgers were led by assistant coach Randall McCray. Coach McCray is quickly becoming one of the top recruiters in the Big Ten and he's been doing a phenomenal job in Illinois, especially in the Chicago area.
