PROFILE

Smith was a starter at San Jacinto, where he had a 2.70 ERA and a 33:96 BB/SO ratio in 86.2 innings this season. He had a better ERA(2.30) as a freshman in 2014, but he had just 54 strikeouts in 70.1 innings. As a junior in high school, he was hitting 89 MPH and has added a couple inches to his frame, but still has room to add muscle. If the Pirates are unable to sign him, he will transfer to LSU next season. Fourth round pick Jacob Taylor also committed to LSU for next year, so the Pirates could hurt their recruiting class.
