Smith will become a Lady Tigers after wrapping up a successful career with the Lady Rebels, including a trip to Sub-State this past season.

Smith, the daughter of Jody and Tee Smith, led TRA in digs and attacks in 2016 for Head Coach Wendy Porter. Porter joined Smith parents and brother Jebb for the signing in the TRA Lobby.

The inking of her national letter of intent is the latest accomplishment for Smith in volleyball. She has racked up awards and team achievements in club volleyball playing for Memphis Metro, Mississippi Storm and Memphis Juniors (nationally ranked).

She played competitively for six years outside of Rosemark earning the Hustle Award, Best Defensive Player and MVP.

As a senior captain for TRA, she helped the Lady Rebels reach Sub-State playing libero. She was named Best of the Preps and All-West Division II the past two seasons.

Smith will play for Memphis Head Coach April Jauregui in the American Athletic Conference.
