Smith has a good pitcher's frame at 6-foot-2, 200 pounds and the arm strength to match. He sits in the low 90s and touches 95 mph with his fastball. He also mixes in a slider, but he still needs to develop the pitch more. He has a rough delivery and profiles as a reliever. Committed to attend Tennessee next year, Smith was 10-1, 1.13 with 102 strikeouts and 35 walks in 80 innings this season.
