MSU is a NCAA Division 1 AA school and plays in the Big Sky Conference. Its program dates back to 1897 and has claimed 3 national title, each at a different level ? NAIA, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division 1-AA.

Currently there are six players listed on the roster from the State of Texas. Head Coach is Jeff Choate who will be entering his first football season as a head coach.

what does Smith think …?
?
Smith has made one visit so far and plans to take an official visit for a home game some time this season but so far he likes what he has seen and heard.
?
?They?re trying to get better and they?re trying to make things greater and they?re also expanding a lot,? Smith told Paul Schwedelson of the Bozeman Daily Chronicle. ?So what once was known as small Montana State University won?t be like that for much longer, and I just want to get on that train while it?s moving.?
?

There is a whole football season ahead of Smith before he signs on any dotted line. Wide receiver don?t often get to strut their stuff in the Wildcat run-oriented offense but look for some good looks for Smith this year. He is too good of an athlete for the Wildcats not to find a way to exploit his talents this season.

?
Last year Smith led all receivers with 19 receptions for 466 yards at 24.5 yards per and 6 touchdowns.
