"Kashaun is a great addition to our program.  He is a versatile player who can play anywhere in the defense," Sanchez said. "He has played at the highest level of soccer in Jamaica and was the captain of his successful high school team.  He will add athleticism to our back line and make us a much deeper team."

In addition to the Walker Cup, Smith was a part of the Wolmer's team that won a National Championship at the U14 and U16 levels. The team also won two Urban Championships.
