Possible Future NFL Star

Born and raised in Highland Park, New Jersey, L.J. Smith tight end for the Baltimore Ravens has made it well in the NFL, but what about his brother? Nate Smith, L.J. Smiths younger brother is one of  the better high school prospects I have seen. He is 6 foot and 225 pounds. He is known to people as Superman.

On Saturday i saw him go for 506 all purpose yards. He had 341 yards on 30 carries and two touchdowns. He returned a 99 yard kickoff for a touchdown, and he had two interceptions one for a 38 yard return. 

The thing I want to know is why aren't teams like Florida, Texas, and USC trying to recruit him? He can play running back, wide receiver, kick and punt returner, defensive end, linebacker, cornerback, and safety, but he wants to go to Temple University. If he ever goes pro, I would give him advice to go to the panthers, or the dolphins with very good wildcat plays which he could do very well in.
