With position company like DeVante Parker, Damian Copeland, and Eli Rogers you don’t often hear enough about an extremely reliable wide receiver in Andrell Smith. With an knack for going un-noticed at times, his game has been far from quiet on paper.
After missing some time during his senior year of high school, Smith came to Louisville as a 2-star prospect out of Miami Florida and the 15th ranked prospect out of Dade County. Andrell played primarily on special teams as a true freshman for the Cards, but turned in a solid sophomore season starting all 13 games and finishing fourth on the team with 25 receptions for 377 yards and three touchdowns. Regressing a bit his junior season Smith managed only six starts in 12 games with 207 yards and one TD.
A stigma that has stuck with Andrell over his career is an inconsistency catching the ball while at times finding a way to make ridiculously athletic plays to bring the ball inand/or get the necessary yards after catch. Thankful
