College

Smith played in all 13 games as a freshman in 2011, tallying 294 receiving yards on 14 catches. Smith was responsible for the biggest play of the season for the Buckeyes as he caught a 40-yard touchdown pass from Braxton Miller with only 20 seconds left in the game to knock off 15th ranked Wisconsin by a score of 33-29.   

In 2012 Smith finished second on the Buckeyes in catches with 30 and receiving yards with 618. The six touchdowns scored by Smith were the most for a receiver on the team.

A Kenny Guiton pass to Smith for 90 yards against the California Golden Bears set a new Buckeye record for longest play from scrimmage.
