Smit had initially been selected to cover for Raymond Rhule, who is sidelined with an ankle injury.
Prinsloo has performed well for Griquas in their recent Vodacom Cup success.
The Cheetahs stunned the Brumbies last weekend in Bloemfontein to move two points clear off the bottom of the Super Rugby log.
