For Cade Smith, his high school career at Pleasanton didn’t end the way he had hoped. An overtime loss to Rockport-Fulton knocked the Eagles out of the playoffs. After reflecting on his high school career, Cade is looking forward to making a decision on his future and where he will attend college.
Up until last week Cade had scholarship offers from Texas A&M-Kingsville and Trinity University (Tx). That all changed when the University of Michigan contacted the coaching staff at Pleasanton and offered Cade a preferred walk-on. Things didn’t stop there as Utah State made the same offer the following day. The Aggies also offered Cade’s twin brother Zach a preferred walk-on. Just yesterday Army extended an offer to the twins. Cade has made it known that he and his brother wish to play college football together.
As recruiting heats up, expect to see more offers coming Cade’s way. At 6’4 220lbs, he’s a versatile OLB who will possibly end up playing DE after a couple of years. Having a high GPA and SAT score has helped him garner attention from Ivy League schools. Where will Cade Smith end up playing college football? Stay tuned as the recruiting process continues.
