Scouting Report: With his rare combination of size and skill level, Smith is a consensus top-ten five-star prospect. He is very quick and mobile for his size and has a diverse skill set, which gives him the ability to play inside and on the perimeter. He excels on the block and in the mid-post where he can employ a number of back-to-the-basket and face-up moves including a nearly unstoppable fade-away jumper. He’s a good shooter from the perimeter and has the ability to put the ball on the floor as well. His size and length make him an impact player defensively and he is a very good rim protector. He has been a standout in a number of different settings including high school, on the travel circuit, and with Team USA. He will continue to be a priority prospect for a number of the country’s best programs when play picks back up in the coming weeks.
