6-foot, 155-pound two-time Future Gamer grades towards the top of his class in regards to pure arm strength.  Lean, wiry frame with good athleticism and some projection.  Quiet, delivery and controlled tempo with quick, whippy arm working up to 3/4 slot.  The stuff hasn’t been an issue with Smith, who shows three pitches that dance and dart creating good separation, but harnessing the stuff has been Smith’s biggest obstacle.  Lively, high-spin FB worked 85-90 (2026-2302 rpm per Trackman) with occasional arm side action.  Heavy FB mix, but showed mid 70s CB and 78-82 mph CH.  The breaking ball took a slight step back after looking like a 12/6 hammer early in his prep career, and developing into more SL action.  Third offering is hard CH with slight fade and potential to develop to round out mix. Smith has the stuff to be a power 5 arm, but needs to take the next step in commanding the zone and showing more consistency from outing to outing. He's made small steps in 2020, and once it clicks, he should be an exciting prospect to watch.

Max FB: 86 FB: 82-84 CB: 69-73 CH: 75-76

The 5-foot-10, 155-pound young right hander was the only class of 2023 prospect for Team Tennessee.  Smith displayed quick arm w/ low-effort delivery.  Quick-twitch athlete w/ average frame but good projectability.  Fastball worked 82-84, topping 86 (Max Spin: 2273 AVG: 2064) w/ late, arm side run/sink.  Curveball had sharp 11/5 break w/ good bite at 69-73.  Changeup showed good arm side fade from LHH at 75-76 (Max Spin: 1771 AVG: 1641).  Struggled w/ command a bit, but advanced three pitch mix for age. As one of the youngest 2019 Future Games participants, Smith established himself as a premium arm for the 2023 class.
