Former Stanner Ready To Take Some Visits

Reporter Mike Sullivan updates the recruiting status of former Molloy burner, guard Russell Smith, who currently competes for South Kent in Connecticut ...

Russell Smith, an exciting 5-foot-11, 165-pound combo guard from South Kent in Connecticut, is scheduled to take a visit this upcoming weekend. "I'm going to visit La Salle," said Smith, who played last year for legendary head coach Jack Curran at Archbishop Molloy High School in Briarwood, New York.

"I'm probably going to visit Houston too on November 7th," he said.

Smith, who can burn past defenders with his handle, is a terrific offensively minded guard who has the ability to produce plenty of points from almost any spot on the floor.

It's why he has solid division one interest right now in his skill level. "My third visit will probably come in December," he said, adding he's in no rush to make a college decision.

He previously mentioned interest in Auburn, Ball State, St. Bonaventure, Louisville, Rutgers, DePaul, Virginia, Connecticut, and Notre Dame.


A superlative scorer around the rim, Smith has a knack for finishing tough drives. He is capable of taking over games with his scoring, and does the majority of his damage within 12 feet of the hoop. He is able to break down defenders with his dribble and get into the lane for floaters or runners.
