Former Illini Guard Jamar Smith to Transfer

Life for Jamar Smith at the University of Illinois the past year and a half has not been what he planned when he committed to play basketball there. Yesterday Smith talked about his plans to transfer.

February 12, 2007 Smith drove his car into a tree on South First Street in Champaign, which injured his teammate Brian Carlwell, who was sent to the hospital.

On July 25th Smith was at a local establishment when the police were called there for another incident, but knew Smith and could smell alcohol on his breath. He refused to take a breathalyzer test, but did admit to them he had been drinking.

Smith is no longer a member of the Illinois basketball team. His current plans are to attend Southern Indiana University at the start of second semester.
