The numbers quite honestly speak for themselves. Smart scored 26 points, and did so on 8-18 shooting, which included five made three pointers. Obviously the shooting stroke was very impressive to knock in five from deep, but also he showed ability getting to the rim. With good size and athleticism, Smart can play a variety of positions, and then also shows the toughness to defend. His offensive game will only continue to improve with repetition, and athletically as he gets stronger it is scary to think of what he could become. Kevin Ollie was taking in the game were coaches from Florida State, LSU, Alabama, and Auburn among many, many others. There is no doubt Smart will be one of the top players in his class.
Peach Jam: JaVonte Smart
Class of 2018 prospect JaVonte Smart blew up in a big way this spring, and he did nothing to hurt his stock as an elite prospect with his play at the Peach Jam. That was never more evident than with his performance on Friday night.
