Blue Smith picks Ohio State Buckeyes over Kentucky Wildcats

Blue didn’t pick the blue.

Blue Smith is off the board.

The elite receiver made his decision on Sunday in an announcement on ESPN. To no surprise, Smith picked the Ohio State Buckeyes, despite a strong push from the Kentucky Wildcats.

This has been a fierce recruitment in recent months after Ohio State made Smith more of a priority, whereas Kentucky had been recruiting him for much longer. But when the Buckeyes come calling for an in-state prospect, beating them is one of the hardest things to do in recruiting.

Alas, Kentucky is still in great shape for several receivers in the Class of 2018. The most notable of which is Meechi Harris, a three-star prospect who also hails from the Buckeye state. Ohio State has shown interest in Harris, so perhaps an offer would have come had the Buckeyes missed on Smith.
