Emmitt Smith's son is looking to follow in his dad's footsteps. E.J. Smith, a running back, is a 2020 recruit that's starting to get major interest from several programs.

E.J. Smith, a running back out of Dallas, Texas, has received scholarship offers from programs like Arkansas, Florida, Georgia and Ohio State, among other programs. He recently took a visit to Columbus to check out the Buckeyes.

The visit appeared to go well. Emmitt Smith was on the trip along with his wife and daughter.

Emmitt Smith tweeted out a photo of the visit. The family also took a visit to Eddie George's restaurant.

As for E.J. Smith, he also appeared to enjoy the visit. He put on a No. 2 Ohio State jersey.

E.J. is currently considered to be a four-star recruit in the 2020 class. He's believed to be one of the top running back prospects in the country. If he's anything like his dad, Ohio State (or Florida or Georgia or another program) is going to be very, very lucky.
