Smith has played multiple positions and pitched at Eastern Wayne High in Goldsboro, N.C., but he's found a home behind the plate, where scouts think he projects best. Though he struggled some in the showcase circuit, his receiving skills showed improvement this spring, albeit while catching primarily low-80s stuff. His arm strength and overall tool package is average across the board, although he does show some pull-side pop. A UNC-Charlotte commit, Smith is thought to be signable anywhere in the first 10 rounds.
