AAU TEAM: New York City Gauchos
CLASS: 2009, A Current Junior
POSITIONS: Point Guard/Shooting Guard
EVALUATION OF RUSSELL SMITH'S INDIVIDUAL GAME: The Molloy guard knows one speed -- fast. He is able to sprint by defenders with his dribble and stagger a defender with some shake and bake.
Russell has an exciting individual game and is more productive this season than ever before. As a starter, he is the most dangerous player on the court for Jack Curran's Stanners.
He has produced a better floor game now that he is given most of the minutes at the lead guard position for Molloy.
SCHOOLS OF INTEREST: It's early in his recruiting process. But the list is extensive. Minnesota, Hofstra, Louisville, Georgia Tech, Iona, Seton Hall, Rutgers, Fordham, George Mason, Connecticut, Minnesota, Stanford, Syracuse, and Manhattan.
