Football Recruit Profiled in the Washington Post

Consider this a fact to remember next fall when weekend conversations revolve around football.

Devon Smith, an incoming freshman recruit from Maryland, was profiled in this morning’s Washington Post.

He’s just 5’7″ and 152 pounds, which is small for a college player. Though in football it’s a disadvantage, that body type is a singular advantage for him in his other athletic endeavor. As he told the WaPo’s reporter, “I’m a football player running track.”

Smith has a chance of making the Olympics in a sprint event, but his track coaches think that playing football for Penn State could eliminate that possibility.

“He still hasn’t tapped into his full potential,” Murray said of Smith’s track prospects. “The cap is still on if you ask me. He hasn’t even knocked the cap off yet.”

Smith, or “moo-moo”, as he is known to friends, reminds us a lot of Evan Royster.

Royster could have gone virtually anywhere to play lacrosse, but instead chose to play football at Penn State. But he too values football more than his other sports.

Penn State and the Process of Life

To paraphrase Mark Twain: The reports of higher education’s death have been an exaggeration. American universities produce more research and relevant knowledge for the world at large than any other institutions I know of. Tuition may be too damn high, but over the long-run, undergraduate degrees are definitely worth the cost. But Penn State could be so much more. It used to be, I think.
