Smith came into the 2023 season with significant buzz following a monster fall in which he established himself as an everyday member of the Seminoles’ lineup. He showed flashes of plus raw power and showed the ability to defend well at third with a plus arm, but swing-and-miss issues hindered the freshman’s production.

Smith had a great summer in the Cape Cod League and addressed some of those concerns by hitting .347/.406/.575 with six home runs and 12 doubles and showing a more advanced approach and better contact ability against all pitch types.

Smith has a big-league body now at 6-foot-3, 221 pounds, and his plus-throwing arm should give him a chance to stick at third if he can improve his glovework and throwing accuracy.
