COACH MATHEY ON SMITH:
"Alex is one heck of an athlete who comes from a great program at Parkland from Coach Kennedy. He had a good freshman season but unfortunately he ran in to a little bit of an injury bug this year which is unfortunate because we won't see him play this year. On the positive side, it creates a redshirt situation for him so he'll have three years of eligibility left which is a good thing for us. He's a guy who's going to push things in the outfield and we are obviously losing a great athlete in Jamison Wells and Alex is that type of athlete. He can run, he can cover and he can cover."
