AAU Team: Pure Prep 17U
High School Team: Niles North High School
Strengths: Smart’s play over the weekend spark his emergence as a potential sleeper in the 2020 class. His size, athleticism, court vision, and ability to get down hill impressed scouts in each game. He is capable of running a team and picking his spots but can also take over when his team needs him most. Smart will draw the attention of major division 1 schools looking for a point guard with a lot of upside.
Improvement Opportunity: Smart could benefit from an improved mid-range game to take advantage of his size at his position by shooting over smaller guards. Added strength would improve his efficiency finishing with contact.
Projection: High/Mid Major Division 1 prospect who will pick up multiple offers before summer’s end.
