Small, a sophomore at Huntington Beach (Calif.) Ocean View, is a pass first lead guard that sees the floor well, knows how to run a team, but is also a capable scorer.
"I think I've been playing good this year," Small told Scout.com. "I'm being more aggressive than I was last year because we had a lot of weapons. But this year I feel like I have to facilitate and score for us to win."
"When I'm rolling I'm getting to the basket, getting fouled and getting to the free throw line and just making the right plays at the right time," he added.
"It's good," he said of the recruiting process. "I like it. It's fun. I've been to a couple of campuses."
"I'm trying to go up to Gonzaga soon," he said.
"I grew up following Gonzaga," Small said. "I don't know, I've just liked them a lot since Adam Morrison was there."
What sticks out about the Bulldogs?
"I like their style and it would be fun to play with some national players with how they recruit players from around the world," Small said.
