ScoutTV Presents Tennessee Commitment - South
Posted Mar 7, 2005

Tennessee finished with the #1 Recruiting Class in the Country for the Class of 2005, and the Volunteers didn't waste much time getting a jump start on the Class of 2006. Jacques McClendon of the Baylor School in Chattanooga is an athletic line prospect, and Powell High School's Lee Smith is something special at tight end. See Smith in action in this presentation by ScoutTV.

Lee Smith of Powell High School near Knoxville, Tenn. is a terrific big athlete at 6-5 and 240 pounds. He stars at tight end and defensive end for his team, and he has a long future ahead of him.

"He plays tight end and defensive end for us," said Powell Head Coach Larry Stephens. "Sometimes we put him out at wide receiver, and he did a heck of a job for us at defensive end as well. He had 21 catches for 420 yards and six touchdowns, and on defense he had 55 tackles and nine sacks."

Smith has the size and quickness to play early on the next level.

"I think Tennessee is primarily looking at him at tight end. He's about a 4.85 forty player with soft hands. He's in good shape academically. We actually looked at the possibility of him going to Tennessee in December, but he is going to stay through graduation."

Smith's dad Darryl Smith played at Tennessee and was a star in the NFL. He is now the offensive line coach at Powell, and he passed along very good genes to his son.

Lee Smith is a difference maker on both sides of the ball. he is a huge target in the middle of the field, and he has the athletic ability to be a target out wide much like the Atlanta Falcons use Alge Crumpler. Smith has good technique on both sides of the ball. He is a tenacious blocker and a terror on defense. With his frame and his talent, he could see the field early at Tennessee if he is called upon.
