Brandon Smith isn't where he thought he'd be, but the former Lincoln County High School standout has landed on his feet.
Smith has transferred from Missouri to defending Division I-AA national champion Western Kentucky and said he is expecting to play Saturday when the Hilltoppers take on West Virginia Tech.
Smith transferred to Western last week after what he termed a "disagreement" with an unnamed assistant coach at Missouri.
"Me and another coach weren't on the same page," Smith said. "It was a disagreement regarding some drills that I was doing. I felt that the way I was doing the drill and the exercise was the same as how other people were doing it, but I was not getting treated the same exact way.
"After the disagreement happened, I was kind of suspended or whatever, I don't know what was really going on, but I felt the need to contact other schools."
