High school career

A native of Humboldt, Tennessee, Smith attended the University School of Jackson, where he was a three-time All-State offensive lineman. [1]

Regarded as a five-star recruit, Smith was ranked as the No. 1 prospect overall in the class of 2017 by ESPN. [2] He chose Tennessee over scholarship offers from Ohio State, Ole Miss, and Alabama. [3]

College career

In his true freshman year at Tennessee, Smith started all twelve games; first at right guard, later at left tackle. [4] For his efforts in the 2017 season, he was named to the All-SEC Second Team. [5]

After starting the first seven games of this sophomore season at left tackle, Tennessee's medical staff discovered blood clots in Smith's lungs and ruled him out indefinitely. [6] The issue had originally been discovered in February 2018, before the Volunteers' spring practice but thought to have been resolved. [7] Smith missed the remainder of the 2018 season.

Cleared to return for his junior season, Smith was moved to left guard as true freshman Wanya Morris took over as left tackle. [8] He was named to the All-SEC First Team. Despite some speculation that he would enter the 2020 NFL Draft, Smith announced that he would remain in Tennessee for his senior year. [9]
