All-State football: Edmond Santa Fe's Trevan Smith still looking for Division-I offer

OKLAHOMAN ALL-STATE RECEIVER — Even at 5-foot-8, it's hard for Edmond Santa Fe's Trevan Smith to be overlooked on the field. He has been overlooked a bit on the recruiting trail.

Harding remembers playing against Smith in middle school.

Harding sized up Smith and thought Smith wouldn't give him much of a problem.

“I was like, ‘Who is this dude?'” Harding said. “he just passed right by me on a route or a run.”

Santa Fe quarterback Justice Hansen never got tired of going Smith's way.

In a 27-21 win over Norman that wound up giving the Wolves the district title, Smith caught six passes for 193. Those catches included a 90-yarder for a touchdowns and another long catch that set up another score.

“It's pretty crazy to get the ball in his hands and see the stuff he does,” Hansen said. “He amazes me every time I throw it to him.”

Smith was a piece of a deep receiver corps last season but made huge strides this year in becoming the feature piece.

“I think it was just a better grasp of the system,” Manning said. “He had a better feel for the offense and what was expected of him. The athletic ability has always been there.”

He also continued to improve on defense.

“People just didn't go after him very much,” Manning said. “He's that good. He's not real tall but he plays so big.”
