Scout’s Note – A little bit of an unknown to the scouting world, Smith is an up-and-coming prospect with strong versatility to play multiple positions on either side of the ball. A long and lanky guy, Smith provides natural athletic skills that could translate to the next level in a variety of ways. The Hilltoppers rising senior has good speed along with a long frame to line up at receiver (inside or outside) and cause damage down the field. He also has the look of someone that if bulked up, could transition into a running back. He shows good agility and the ability to make strong cuts with vision. The versatility that Smith presents may suit best on the defensive side of the ball. His natural instincts works well on defense whether it be at linebacker, safety or cornerback. Stepping back to look at Smith, safety looks to be his best spot on the next level with his size, speed and physical nature. The more he is able to mature and fill out, the more college coaches will look his way.
Recruiting – The recruiting game has yet to get started for Smith. He is a prospect that sits way under the radar at this current time but has the abilities to make it to the next level. Camp season will be big for the Hilltoppers rising senior. Smith will need to put himself in front of college coaches and allow them to see his abilities up close and personal. The more he improves his game and body, the more collegiate coaches will take a look in his direction.
Coaches Take – Hillwood Assistant Coach Corey Burton: “Jayvion is a very hard worker and dedicated. He jump from basketball, to track then to football, so he tries to stay active with sports. As a football player, he is still very raw but has great agility and leaping ability along with good speed. He’s also a physical player as well. Off the field, Jayvion is a an easy going guy that can get along with anyone. I think the best is ahead for Jayvion.”
