COLLEGE STATION-Shawn Smith, a shooting guard from Jacksonville, Fla., has signed a national letter-of-intent to play basketball at Texas A&M, head coach Billy Kennedy announced Wednesday.
Smith, a Chicago native who prepped last season at Faith Baptist
Christian School in Jacksonville, can play multiple positions in the
backcourt for the Aggies. ESPN.com rated him as a top-40 shooting guard
nationally and as the ninth-best in the state of Florida.
"We are really excited to have Shawn join our Aggie family," Kennedy
said. "His versatility offensively and mental toughness defensively will
add great depth at the guard position."
An ESPNHS Florida preseason all-state selection, Smith has seen
tremendous success on the court-especially on the AAU circuit. He led
his 16 and under team to the Florida State championship in the summer of
2010, earning Player of the Year honors. In addition, Smith was a
two-time all-tournament pick at the Bob Gibbons Tournament of Champions
and earned an invitation to the prestigious NBA Players Association camp
Smith is an impressive and important addition to an already strong Texas
A&M signing class, which includes November signees Alex Caruso and
