Four-star prospect Tracy Smith has found his work ethic, gotten back in shape and has had a productive spring for the Georgia Hurricanes.
Down to a reported 225-pounds, the 6-foot-7 forward is working with a top four school list.
"My top four schools are Oklahoma State, North Carolina State, Louisville and Florida State," said Smith, who attends Mt. Zion in Durham, N.C. "Oklahoma State and North Carolina State have offered, but I'm still open."

Smiths' travel team coach Horace Neysmith feels Smith, who is presently the No. 96 ranked prospect in the Rivals150, is poised to rise in the post-summer rankings.
"Tracy has had a tremendous spring and put up big numbers for us because he has a newly found dedication to the game," said Neysmith. "He has lost a lot of weight. When it is all said and done, he will be a top 50 kid.
"He is more explosive and has extended his range. He is running better also.
"He has great touch, but he does need to turn his outside shot into a jump shot instead of shooting a set shot."
A polished low post player, Smith is presently focused on improving his perimeter game.
"I'm working hard on my ball handling and shooting off the dribble," said Smith. "Basically, I'm working on my small forward skills."
