"I think I have been playing pretty good," said Smith of his spring. "Of course you always have things to work on, but overall I think I have done alright. I know I haven't reached my full potential, but I am gaining confidence and I know I will get there."
At nearly 6-foot-7 and about 185 pounds, Smith is showing the ability to play either forward spot, and versatility is what he feels is the best part of his game.
"I'm trying to show coaches that I can do whatever," said Smith. "If you need me to post up, I will post up, if you need me to shoot I can do that, and if you need me to lead I can do that."
Recruiting wise three schools have stepped up and offered Smith a scholarship.
Having an offer from his hometown school is a big deal, and Smith says it is an honor to have the Running Rebels after him.
"It is great," said Smith of the UNLV offer. "Just going to the games every now and then, it is like wow, I really want to be here, and for them to offer me is just awesome."
UNLV's Mountain West rival San Diego State is also right in the mix and the Aztecs have made an impression on Smith.
"The first UNLV game I watched was against San Diego State, and they beat UNLV, and ever since then I was like wow I would love to go out there," said Smith. "They just have a great program out there."
It is still very early in the process for Smith, but he already has a pretty good clue of what factors will lead him to picking a school.
"I look for a school in a city, the academics, and the basketball program," said Smith. "I would like to be in a nice city, I wouldn't want to be in a bad environment. Academics come first as always, and after that just a basketball program I fit in well with."
