Smith is similar to Sam Houston State teammate Cody Dickson in that they're both lean lefthanders with plus fastballs and shaky control. They've led the Bearkats to back-to-back Southland Conference titles for the first time in the program's history. Smith (7-4, 2.84) had a better season than Dickson (9-4, 4.14), but scouts consider Dickson the better prospect because he has cleaner mechanics and a superior breaking ball. Smith gets credit for having the better changeup, a solid pitch that plays off his 89-94 mph fastball well. There's stiffness and effort to the 6-foot-2, 185-pounder's delivery, which makes it difficult for him to throw an effective slider or command his offerings on a consistent basis. He'll likely transition to the bullpen in pro ball.
