Eddie Smith did not make the short trip to LSU for the team’s scrimmage this weekend, but a visit remains in the works.
Smith, a 3-star cornerback from Salmen (La.) High School, will instead visit the Baton Rouge campus for Thursday’s spring practice session, he told SEC Country.
The 6-foot, 172-pounder has enjoyed a breakout spring and boasts more than 10 offers. That includes his latest overture from Mississippi State as well as Louisiana Tech, Memphis, Tulane and Oregon State.
Smith was expected to make a return trip to LSU for Saturday’s scrimmage, the team’s third of the spring. But a scheduling conflict got in the way.
Smith previously made an unofficial visit to LSU in February for the program’s “Boys From The Boot” recruiting event. This will be his second trip this spring.
The fast-rising in-state cornerback is beginning to gain a reputation thanks to the size, speed and toughness he has displayed as a starting defensive back for Louisiana Bootleggers, the state’s premier 7-on-7 team. Smith is the No. 56 corner in the 2018 recruiting class and the No. 31 overall recruit in Louisiana this cycle, per the 247Sports Composite rankings.
