Donovan Smith the All-State Second Team Offensive Tackle of Owings Mills High finished as one of the Top 10 linemen out of the 75 or so linemen that were invited from across the country. He made the All Army Combine Second team with strong consideration for First Team. He held his own against defensive ends from Texas, Florida, California and Louisiana.
As quoted by Michigan scout Eugene Hankerson, "Smith has a great base to build on, he looks like a tight end with long arms to boot. Was outstanding in the 1 on 1's, at the end of the day, there were few who wanted to challenge Smith. Great potential. Donovan is outstanding on the defensive side of the ball as well. Look for Owings Mills to turn the corner this season. Smith is garnering interest from Alabama,Michigan,UCLA,West Virginia and Maryland.
