Having coached at Gateway High School for many years, Terry Smith knows as well as anyone the large amount of talent spread across all of Western Pennsylvania.
With Penn State off this week, Smith was back in his old stomping grounds along with James Franklin to visit as many high schools as possible to talk with head coaches and to recruit and work on relationships with various Underclassmen.
