Jeremis Smith On Verge

The Fort Worth Dunbar (Texas) 6-6 senior forward will likely make an official announcement on Friday, but it's basically a done deal where he'll end up.

Jeremis Smith hasn't made the decision public yet, but from all indications, the Fort Worth Dunbar (Texas) 6-6 senior forward is expected to commit to Georgia Tech by the end of the week.

``He has not made a decision yet," MLK Mash coach Wayne Lewis said. "But they'll probably be an announcement on Friday."

Smith returned from an official visit to Arizona this past weekend, but according to sources, it didn't go so well and he will give his word to Paul Hewitt and his staff. Smith visited Georgia Tech earlier this month.

``Jeremis is a throwback, old-school player," Lewis added. "He really has that type of attitude. He's very tough, is a winner and will ignite a program wherever he goes."

``I know a lot of people haven't seen it yet, but I see him as a bonafide three-man in college," Lewis said. "I've seen the transition in his game since March from a guy who played with his back to the basket to someone who can run the floor."

Smith was also considering Oklahoma.
