A Missouri commit, Smith Jr. shows all of the actions and tools necessary to stick at shortstop, although he still needs some additional reps and added polish. He has average arm strength and solid-average footwork to go along with quick hands and the ability to make plays on the run and throw from multiple slots. He tends to play with flair at times, which showcases his natural ability but also leads to fairly routine errors. Offensively, Smith Jr. has plus bat speed and at least average raw power. He's also an above-average runner and has the work ethic needed to make adjustments going forward.
