Smith signs with MTSU
Lincoln County High School’s baseball standout Caleb Smith (seated) signed last week to play for Middle Tennessee State University following graduation. Smith entertained offers from 18 schools, narrowing it down to Belmont, MTSU and the University of Tennessee. The Blue Raiders recruited Smith as a two-way player as a pitcher and outfielder with an emphasis on pitching that influenced his decision to sign with MTSU.
