Smalls won't make spring game

April 12, 2013 

USC and Clemson will hold spring games Saturday but one of the state's top prospects will pass on both. DB Darin Smalls of Summerville said he's not going to either game.

Smalls was at USC's junior day in March. He also visited Florida State this spring and he will go to Virginia Tech April 20th.

Right now USC remains the team to beat. "It's not a huge lead but they are out front pretty far," he said. "I've been there a lot and I like the campus and the whole college. I talk to coach (Grady) Brown about every two days. We talk about where I fit in and about the defense."

Smalls said Virginia Tech has been making a strong push. "They're saying the same things, like where I would fit in and the impact I could have," he said. But his top three right now are USC, Florida State and Clemson.

Smalls plans to wait until signing day before declaring his intentions.
