Former Seneca HS (Ky.) quarterback DaMarcus Smith has been officially declared eligible for spring practice at Western Kentucky, a source has confirmed.
Smith, who threw for over 3,150 yards and 30 touchdowns as a senior, was one of the nation's hottest quarterback prospects in the Class of 2011.
The former Elite 11 camp standout originally committed to Central Florida out of high school, over offers from Louisville, Kentucky, Indiana and Illinois, among several others.
Smith was recruited by new WKU offensive coordinator Jeff Brohm when Brohm was coaching at Illinois.
He'll compete with returnees James Mauro and Brandon Doughty for the Hilltoppers starting quarterback position when spring practice begins.
