Travis Smith Jr., Westlake, Wide Receiver

Smith’s most recent visit to Auburn was in January.

“They’re definitely higher,” Smith told Auburn Undercover recently about the Tigers. “They’re still in the same place, but with these OVs coming around, I’m curious to see what they have to offer. It was fantastic to see what they did for me, especially because I was the only one there during that January visit.”

The 6-foot-4, 191-pound wide receiver is ranked No. 144 overall, No. 11 wide receiver, and No. 25 in Georgia.

“It’s a great place, and I enjoy the local atmosphere. “There were also some great people there,” Smith remarked. “I went to a restaurant and guys caught up with relationships — we were talking — and those Auburn people really have a special place in my heart right now.”

247Sports’ scouting report on Smith:

“Prototypical outside receiver build, measuring approximately 6-foot-4 and 200 pounds on various occasions, with a large wingspan. Has shown to be a matchup nightmare on the outside on Friday nights and in combination settings against top-tier defensive backs because he can climb the ladder in contested catch scenarios or target all parts of the field with an enlarged route tree. Does not have outstanding top-end gear to separate from faster defensive backs, but has a knack for separating late and tracking the ball in the air. Crafty route runner at all three levels who can effortlessly drop his hips or use subtle head and body motions to fool opponents. At this point in the assessment process, Smith stands out as one of the country’s higher-floor wideouts and one of the best pass catchers from the Deep South. Has the potential to contribute immediately at the Power Four level, but must improve on separating early in his routes to realize long-term NFL Draft upside.”
