Marshall’s Micahh Smith Picks Up Offer From Sam Houston State
Marshall 2016 defensive back Micahh Smith has picked up his third Division I offer, and it came from Sam Houston State, the Mavericks' standout tweeted late Friday night.
Smith (5-11 185) was previously offered by Texas State and Northwestern State.
Sam Houston State, located in Huntsville, is a member of the FCS and competes in the Southland Conference.
The Bearkats are coached by K.C. Keeler, and finished the 2014 season with an overall record of 11-5 with a 7-1 league mark. They lost to North Dakota State, 35-3, in the FCS national semifinals on Dec. 19.
Smith had a solid junior season for Marshall playing both outside linebacker and safety, eventually helping the Mavs to a 7-5 season, which concluded with a area-round playoff loss to Dallas South Oak Cliff.
The Marshall incoming senior also recently competed at the third annual ETSN.fm + APEC Football Recruiting Combine in Tyler.
Smith tied for the second-best vertical jump of all 113 invited prospects at 38.6 inches. His max height vertical was measured as 11 feet, eighth-best among all participants. He also put up 17 reps of 185 pounds on the bench press, a tie for eighth within the combine’s quarterbacks, receivers and defensive backs groups.
Furthermore, Smith turned in a 40-yard dash of 4.79 seconds and a pro agility score of 4.35 seconds. Both events were laster-timed.
Smith, like all 2016 football prospects, becomes eligible to sign with any program that offers him on Feb. 3.
