Smith signing Thursday02/05/2014

Returning from a two day faith retreat, Markel Smith ran into some bad weather in the St. Louis area on Wednesday and will have to send his letter of intent to Iowa tomorrow instead. We caught up with the 5-foot-10, 210-pound Smith to talk about what this week means to him, his thoughts on comparisons to Shonn Greene and Montee Ball, his background in boxing, plus a whole lot more.
