After checking out Colorado on Wednesday, according to ESPN, Kendall Smith will also take an official visit to Oklahoma State and Butler. He is considering NC State and Cal as well.

Smith is a 6-foot-3 point guard that averaged 16.7 points, 4.8 assists, 4 rebounds and 1.3 steals per game at Cal State Northridge last season. He shot 44.5 percent from the field, 37.5 percent from three-point range and 76.2 percent at the free throw line.

Smith signed with UNLV out of Deer Valley High School in Antioch, Calif., and was named the Mountain West Preseason Freshman of the Year in 2013. He started 13 of 31 games during his true freshman season and played two games during the 2014-15 season with the Runnin' Rebels before deciding to leaving the team and transfer to Cal State Northridge. With the Matadors, Smith dramatically improved between his redshirt sophomore and junior seasons.

As a graduate transfer, Smith will be eligible to play one season with his new program immediately, during the 2017-18 season.
