Smith To Fly With Eagles

Interesting was beginning to pick up for Reggie Smith, and then he opted to end his recruitment. He committed and signed on Thursday.

Marquette added their third signee on the last day of the signing period.

Reggie Smith, a 6-foot-1 combo guard out of Harvey (Ill.) Thornton Township, verbally committed to Buzz Williams and his staff and made it official by signing his Letter of Intent to play for the Golden Eagles.

"Yea he committed and signed," Mac Irving Fire coach Nick Irvin told Thursday morning.

Marquette got the nod over strong interest from a host of programs. USC and Indiana had been showing interest, while UCLA and Wake Forest had put in last minute phone calls.

"it was a good fit for him," Irvin said. "They run a three guard offense and they get up and down. It's just his style of basketball and plus it's the Big East."

Smith joins four-star recruit Vander Blue and a three-star prospect Jamail Jones to make up Marquette's 2010 recruiting class.
