While covering some Lady Scotties basketball in Glasgow today, I caught up with a few members of the Glasgow football team who have either made their college decision or are in the process.

First, senior receiver/defensive back Lajuan Smith told me he committed to Eastern Kentucky University this week. Smith said he’ll receive at least a partial scholarship, and that the EKU coaches are open to having him on offense and defense.

Defensively, the 6-foot-3 Smith said the coaches have discussed options at cornerback, safety and linebacker.

“It felt like home up there,” Smith said. “The campus was really nice. They’re a family, and it’s a town that feels like home and isn’t really that far away.”

Smith caught 26 passes for 569 yards and five touchdowns in 2011, also snagging three interceptions in the secondary to help lead the Scotties to the Class 2A state championship game.

Smith and senior quarterback Parker Cash also told me that senior running back Jalen Sublett has committed to Murray State. Sublett wasn’t at the basketball game Saturday for me to confirm, but I’ll work on that in the coming days.

The 6-3 Sublett rushed for 2,172 yards and 27 touchdowns in 2011.

Cash said he’s still deciding between Eastern Kentucky and Murray, both of which would likely recruit him as a defensive back. He said he’ll visit both schools in February and will then make a decision.

Cash totaled 20 touchdowns at quarterback for Glasgow and also had three interceptions on defense.
