Harrison Smith, 6-foot-3, 185-pounds out of Jones High School in Houston, Texas, has the makings of being a complete package combo guard. The No. 44 ranked player in the class of 2006 is still open in his recruitment, but he did give Rivals.com a list of five schools.
"I like Oklahoma, Wichita State, Texas, Texas A&M, and Miami,” said Smith. “I don't think any of them have offered but they are all interested and are recruiting me. It's still early and I am open."
When looking at his college options, Smith is primarily focused on off the court aspects.
"I want to go to a school with good academics,” he said. “They must have nice facilities and coaches and players that I get along with."
Here are Smith’s comments on his top five schools.
On Oklahoma: "I like Kelvin Sampson. I like how he lets his team push the ball. I have met the coaches and have a good relationship with them."
On Wichita State: "They have been recruiting me real hard. I don't know a lot about their program but I want to learn about them."
On Texas: "I like that it is close to home. They also have a good program."
On Texas A&M: "I like the coaching staff. I have been to the campus and liked it a lot. They have real nice facilities."
On Miami: "Coach Heath was recruiting me while he was at Texas. We have a good relationship."
Smith is a physically strong and athletic guard who specializes in getting to the basket. He can also shoot it from the outside and has the capabilities to be a very good defender and rebounder.
"Im working on my pull-up jumper,” he said. “I want to get better at shooting off the dribble. I practice a lot. I want to continue to get better."
