LU Head Coach Will Davis on Tyler Smith:
"Tyler was probably our favorite player on the recruiting circuit last summer. His energy and toughness are an infectious combo. I feel like Tyler is the total package, he is already a physical specimen that has power and speed and a knack for finding the barrel. Tyler plays strong safety for his high school football team and has the speed to play centerfield but likely profiles as a corner outfielder."
