The No. 44 ranked player in the class of 2006 Harrison Smith is focused solely on the upcoming high school season. Plenty of schools are recruiting the 6-foot-3, 185-pound combo guard from Jones High School in Houston, Texas, but Jones will not concern himself with the process until after this season.
"Right now I’m wide open,” said Smith. “The schools recruiting me the hardest are Kansas State, UNLV, Texas, Arkansas, Kansas, Miami, Texas A&M and Louisiana-Lafayette. I’m not sure if I have any offers. Right now I’m concerned with my season. I will get more involved and worry about the recruiting process after my season."
When Smith does decide to concern himself with the process, he has a very good idea of what he is looking for in his future school.
"I’m looking for a school that I’ll receive a good education,” he said. “I want to go where they have a good basketball town and the fans are behind there team. I also want to have a good relationship with the coaching staff and make sure they will be able to help me develop my game."
At the moment, Smith is concentrating on the development of two aspects of his game.
"I’m working on my jumper and trying to get stronger,” he said. “I shoot a 1,000 shots a day and am in the weight room everyday."
Smith noted that coaches from Miami, Texas A&M, UNLV, Arkansas, Louisiana-Lafayette and Texas-Arlington watched him workout this fall.
