KJ Smith cooked opposing defenses last fall en route to 3.1k yards and 38 total touchdowns. The savvy signal-caller out of Roswell is a dual threat capable of lighting up the scoreboard both on the ground and in the air.
Last season’s momentum carried over to the spring, where Smith continued to impress in their spring game against Walton. The rising senior completed 11-13 passes for 232 yards and 3 touchdowns in just one half, and soon after the 5’10” quarterback was offered by Alabama State.
With the summer camp season up ahead, we decided to reach out to the Roswell QB and see where he is camping.
“As of right now, my camp schedule is pretty light will be at Georgia Tech on June 8th, Alabama State on the 17th, and Southern Illinois on the 23rd,” Smith said.
The rising senior also gave a quick update on how his offseason has gone so far.
“Offseason is going well, I have a good training schedule that I’ve been on.”
On the recruiting side of things, Smith has been surveying his options with no real visit standing out just yet, but he did allude that “will change soon.”
Focusing back on his development, Smith believes he has taken a jump as a quarterback.
“The thing I think I’ve improved on the most this offseason is my accuracy, film study, and maximizing my running ability.”
Undoubtedly, Smith is one of the most impactful players returning to class 6A this upcoming season. Roswell will be among the favorites again to win the state title, and Smith will in large part be their offensive engine.
“Some of my goals for the rest of my career are winning a state championship and being Georgia Player of the Year,” he said.
If everything goes to plan, all of those possibilities are certainly within reason, and that’s what makes the summer before the season so interesting. Everything is possible, and it is certainly of our opinion that Smith is set for a big senior year, and so should his recruitment follow.
