Even at 5-foot-8, it's hard for Edmond Santa Fe's Trevan Smith to be overlooked.

Not with his streaking down the field behind defensive backs time and time again.

Not with his shutdown corner skills that confound opposing receivers left and right.

The skill earned Smith a spot on The Oklahoman's All-State team at wide receiver.

Still, though, Smith is being overlooked a bit on the recruiting trail.

He's still holding out hope for a Division-I offer, for someone to take a chance that the flash he showed for the Wolves will translate to the next level.

His teammate and one of his closest friends, Santa Fe defensive back Khari Harding, is indignant that Smith hasn't been given that chance yet.

Harding, himself committed to Arkansas, believes Smith can play at that level.

“He may be small but he's a great athlete,” Harding said. “I don't see why anybody hasn't recognized it yet. I just hope he starts getting looked at.”

What he did for the Wolves this year, though, was phenomenal.

He had 1,333 yards and 15 touchdowns receiving.

“Nobody could cover him all year long,” Wolves coach Lance Manning said. “His explosion offensively is incredible to me.

“Even against Tulsa Union, he was behind them. We didn't get them the ball for whatever reason that night but it wasn't because he wasn't open.”
