The Palmetto State features a pair of hard-throwing, erratic arms at the Division II level in righthander Mason McCullough and Smith. A transfer from Coastal Carolina, Smith has a twin brother named Grayson who also plays on the team. Although he has been used as a starter, Smith's likely role is as a reliever with a two-pitch mix. In short stints, his fastball can sit 92-95 mph, touching 95. His slider flashes above-average when he throws it properly, though it is inconsistent. He has used power stuff to strike out 13 per nine in his career. Smith has well below-average control, evidenced by eight walks per nine in his career. He has a high-effort delivery with a head whack and long arm action from a high three-quarters arm slot. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound Smith has a strong, muscular build.
