Smith posted solid numbers for a sophomore shortstop. After running a 7.09 60-yard dash, he posted a 90 mph exit velocity off the tee. The right-handed hitter has a balanced setup with flex in his lower half, and uses a simple load and short stride as he triggers his hands back. Back knee fires forward as he slots the barrel into the zone, hands work quick on an inside-out, short path, producing hard line drives during batting practice. Scorched a single to centerfield during the game. On the infield, is where Smith really stands out as he plays through the ball with smooth actions, soft hands, midline exchange, quick release and his arm works from different slots with a top velocity of 81 mph across the diamond.

Smith is listed at 5-foot-10, 160-pounds, with a still developing frame. The young middle infielder moves easy on the infield with polished actions. Quick first step, stays stacked over his feet as he moves lateral with smooth footwork, soft hands and fast exchange. The ball sticks in his glove yet never stops, providing for fluid motion into a clean arm stroke that works from different slots with accuracy, touch, and top velocity of 80 mph. Offensivley, the right-handed hitter starts from a slightly open stance with the barrel on his shoulder and his hands sitting relaxed. Simple load as he shifts his hands back and down while taking a short stride, creating some separation as he lands balanced. Inside out path with quickish hands that work through the on an uphill path, creating some lift with a top exit velocity of 84 mph. Ran a 7.14 60-yard dash.
