Boston Smith, the son of former Utah football and NFL star receiver Steve Smith, received an offer from the University of Utah — but not in football.

Utah basketball coach Craig Smith offered Boston Smith a basketball scholarship Friday.

“Thankful for an offer from The University of Utah,” Boston Smith tweeted.

Steve Smith tweeted, “Breaking news!!! Proud of you son!!”

The 6-foot-2 guard, part of the 2023 class, plays for Carmel Christian High in North Carolina.

He also holds an offer from Hampton University.
