Texas had always been the leader for ESPN 150 cornerback Maurice Smith. He was just waiting on an offer from the Longhorns so he could pull the trigger. However, that offer came later than expected, and UT is no longer the clear-cut favorite.
In fact, after visiting the University of Alabama for A-Day a week ago, the Crimson Tide now sit atop Smith’s list. The Lone Star native feels he has a chance to play right away at UA.
“All that was really eye-opening,” Smith said. “Everybody wants to go in there and start. I know that’s most likely not going to happen, but if I have a chance I want to know it. Even if I don’t start, I know I’ll still be in the rotation.”
