When considering the country’s best college baseball talent in 2017, Smith should be on the list. He was tabbed as a pre-season All-American by multiple outlets and was the pre-season selection for Big Ten Player of the Year by both Perfect Game and D1baseball.com. Those accolades follow a breakout summer in the Cape Cod Baseball League. Playing for the Yarmouth-Dennis Red Sox, Smith hit .301 in 41 games while leading the team in hits (43) and doubles (12). He ultimately helped led his club to the CCBL title while being honored as an All Star and all-league selection.

A standout in the classroom as well, the 6-foot, 188-pound, right-handed-hitter earned All-Academic honors in 2016. He returns to College Park to help the nationally-ranked Terps get to the College World Series in Omaha. He’ll also enter this season knowing if he puts up solid numbers, he’ll more than likely be taken in the first few rounds of the 2017 MLB draft. His season begins Friday in the Clearwater (Fla.) Tournament against Ball State.
