Soon to be on the Arkansas Razorbacks’ roster, Houston son Trelon Smith enjoyed a brief, but solid, career with Arizona State University.
The announcement he had transferred by “mutual agreement” came March 10, according to NBC Sports. The report noted the running back will sit out spring practice in favor of officially joining the team later this year. He may need an exemption to begin eligible play this fall under NCAA rules, the report said.
His Arizona State bio called him a “highly regarded running back prospect,” with a “great ability to catch the ball out of the backfield.” However, the school dropped him from their roster in after his 2017 freshman year.
At Cy Ridge High School in Houston, Smith was twice named District 17-6A MVP and honorable mention in 2015 by the Texas Sportswriters Association. His 4,400 rushing yards and 500-plus receiving yards, along with an amazing 52 touchdowns as a varsity player, make him a force to be reckoned with.
