Smith Dials Up His Decision

One of the top remaining targets from the Class of 2010 is off the board. Roscoe Smith is going to the Big East.

The Connecticut Huskies pulled in one of the biggest prizes of the winter season.

"Roscoe Smith commits to the University of Connecticut," Brian Thompson, Roscoe's father relayed in a text message.

Oak Hill's standout small forward had been considering the Huskies, Georgetown and Duke.

"He likes the overall style of play they run and getting a coach like Calhoun to teach him some other things he needs to be taught did it." Smith is's No. 32 prospect in the senior class.

"I've known but I wanted to gather more information. I wanted it to be the right choice. The style persuaded me but the history with Coach Calhoun, knowing that he has a history of Baltimore players. Every Baltimore player he's had has been successful: Rudy Gay, Josh Boone, Reggie Williams. Me and my family just put our trust in him."

Smith attended Baltimore Walbrook prior to transferring to Oak Hill this season. He's one of the team's leading scorers and rebounders.
