Smothers receiving daily interest from State

Springdale, Ark., offensive tackle Mitch Smothers knew that he would be recruited.

But the 6-foot-4, 280-pounder had no idea it would be to this extent. Smothers holds nine scholarship offers and taken the recruiting process in stride so far.

Smothers has offers from the table from Arkansas, Kansas, Kentucky, Mississippi State, Missouri, Oklahoma State, Ole Miss, South Carolina and Tulsa.
