Colorado Buffaloes junior Terrel Smith has made an impression in training camp. He's trying to earn a starting spot at strong safety, battling with Ray Polk, Parker Orms and Marques Mosley for one of two spots.
Smith has quietly gone about his business, but his work hasn't gone unnoticed by the Colorado staff, via Brian Howell of Buffzone.com.
"He just continues to do nothing but impress and make progress," CU defensive coordinator Greg Brown said. "He's a good player for us and hopefully we'll look for a big year for him on the field."
"He's become much more of a complete player," Brown said. "He's always been a good tackler, but his intelligence is what impresses you now about the guy. He's worked hard and it shows."
Smith says he feels better in this year's camp than he did as a freshman and a sophomore.
