5-foot-10, 197-pound athletic physical frame. During batting practice, Smith recorded an exit velocity of 97 mph.while beginning in an athletic quiet stance with a controlled load. Has a simple uphill swing plane and electric bat speed with a high finish and a definite gap to gap approach. Showed nice arm strength from the OF as he was up to 87 mph with consistent accuracy to the plate. The athletic recruit showcased his speed with a sub-seven 60 time of 6.71.  Smith is one of the top uncommitted 2022 hitters in the state. There is not a lot of extra movement in the swing but he uses his physical frame to create a ton of juice all over the field. Does a nice job creating backspin and carry off of the barrel. He just conrinues to produce huge numbers and results each time we see him. He doubles as both a quality OF while also being able to play on the dirt as well.
