Josh Smith InDepth Analysis

Josh Smith, likely the best player in this year’s tournament, is the top ranked player in the class of 2010. He first dunked as a 6’4” seventh grader, but now as a 6’10”  270 pound eleventh grader he is just coming into his own after a breakout on the summer circuit. Supposedly projected to be 7 feet tall, his weight has fluctuated, or at least has been reported anywhere from 230 pounds to 310 pounds. Born in 1992, this 16 year old has soft hands and is very explosive around the basket. He has the size, strength and basketball fundamentals to be a game-changing force at the next level. A decent shooter with soft touch around the basket, he is a powerful dunker and a big body in the paint. The best player out of the Seattle area since Martell Webster, Smith plays for the Kentwood High School where he has started since his freshman year and plays for the Seattle Rotary club team. He has offers from most top programs such as Louisville, Kentucky, Duke, UCLA, Texas, and Stanford but has not committed anywhere nor has he even made a list of his top schools. He has unlimited potential at this point because he is still growing and can still add muscle and tone to his frame. The Classic will be a great opportunity for him to solidify his rankings against quality competition and multiple scouts will be here to witness it.
