Smith, originally from Raleigh, NC, also holds offers from Marquette, Wake Forest, Arizona, Georgia Tech, Seton Hall, Oklahoma State, West Virginia, Texas A&M, Alabama, Memphis, Ole Miss, Xavier, Houston, VCU, East Carolina, Eastern Kentucky, Hofstra, UMass, Oregon State, San Diego State, Saint Louis, and Rutgers, per Verbal Commits.

That’s 23 Division I college offers in all so far for Smith, who ESPN rates as a four-star recruit and Rivals with three stars, according to

Sources say that Smith has reclassified into the 2022 class. But he could wind up back with the 2021 graduates. I am guessing that could have some bearing on his recruitment, of course, but we will see. 

Smith spent a year at St. Thomas More in Connecticut and attended Bishop Ludden in Syracuse as a freshman.
