If there are no changes to his plans before January, four-star cornerback Maurice Smith (Sugar Land, Texas/Dulles) will be one of the athletes to announce his college decision live on ESPN.
Smith, an Under Armour All-American, said he will announce where he will take his talents during the 2013 UA All-American Game in January. Smith has offers from 18 schools, including Alabama, LSU, Ohio State, Florida and in-state schools Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, Houston and Baylor.
Smith, No. 89 in the ESPN 150, added that he has yet to finalize a top three or top five and that all of his offers hold similar weight.
Smith is ranked No. 10 nationally among cornerbacks and No. 12 among all 2013 players in Texas. After the Nike Football Training Camp in March in Dallas, Smith earned an invitation to The Opening, an elite football camp in July at Nike headquarters in Beaverton, Ore.
