Heels, Gamecocks interested in DL Calvin Smith

The Tennessee coaching change fallout continues—defensive lineman Calvin Smith, a former Vols’ commitment, has opened things up again and is visiting Alabama this weekend. Which means the Hialeah (Fla.) High product has one official visit remaining. Other than Tennessee, he had also tripped to Illinois and Florida State.

Smith, who is 6-foot-4 and 265 pounds, has been getting calls from South and North Carolina, as their coaches try to grab that last visit. Also in the mix are Southern Cal, New Mexico, Ole Miss and Texas Tech.

Tennessee isn’t giving up. InsideTennessee.com reported that new coach Derek Dooley will visit Smith today and try to bring him back in the fold.

Smith is expected to play DT in college.
