Why everyone is talking about Dennis Smith Jr.
Thursday, January 23, 2014
Dennis Smith's coming out party, at least nationally, was just last month at the High School OT Holiday Invitational. There he averaged 28 points, eight assists and seven rebounds against elite players like Hammond's (Columbia, S.C.) Seventh Woods, HCYA's (Houston) Justin Jackson, a UNC signee, and Carlisle's (Axton, Va.) Thon Maker. Charlotte, N.C. State, Duke, North Carolina, Wake Forest and VCU have all expressed interest in Smith. "I actually grew up an N.C. State fan," said Smith, who stands 6-foot-2. (USA Today
