Nolan Smith favors three heavy-weights

One of the top prospects in the class of 2007, 6'3 Nolan Smith already has a good idea about where he'd preper to play his college ball in a few years.

Elite class of 2007 guard Nolan Smith can pretty much kiss any thought of becoming the #1 player in his class good-bye. That may even go for his position, which is headlined by Cincinnati superstar OJ Mayo. But being runner-up to Mayo is nothing to be ashamed of, and Smith is one of the best prospects around in his class.

Currently a 6'3 scorer from Chevy Chase, Md., Smith is being recruited by some of the highest of high majors already, and with a top three in mind to boot.

"Louisville, Syracuse, (and) Duke," according to Smith, saying "coaching" is what sets them apart from the pack.

Expected to grow to possibly 6'7, Smith is an excellent ball-handler with a lightning quick cross-over and smooth pull up jumper, but don't expect him to move into the frontcourt.

"I'm going to try and stay at the one (point guard), try to play more one as I get older," said Smith.

While Mayo has locked down the #1 spot in the class, look for the five-star Smith to be one of the front-runners for the #2 position behind him.
