Robert Smith, 5-11 JR PG Perris (Calif.) High, is one of the top point guards in the west for 2009. A true point, Smith has an excellent feel for the game and a solid shot to three-point range. He figures to be one of the more heavily recruited point guards in the west when coaches see him in the spring and summer.
I spoke with Smith over the weekend and asked about the schools he's heard from to date.
"Santa Clara, USC, Nebraska, Cal, Utah and San Diego State are the main ones," said Smith. "Santa Clara has offered."
I asked Smith about schools that might not be recruiting him now, but that he'd like to hear from.
"UCLA – I'd be very interested in UCLA," said Smith. "Also, Memphis and Arizona."
Smith said he doesn't really have any particular factors he's looking at in choosing a school.
"I'm just looking for a chance to play," said Smith.
Smith isn't in a hurry to reach a decision.
"I want to take my time and see what happens," said Smith.
A good student, Smith said he has a 3.0 GPA.
