Though a highly-touted recruit, we weren't sure what his natural position was entering his freshman year. We do now.
Smart is a point guard, just not your average one.
At 6'4'' with a strong frame built for basketball, Smart's first instinct is to make a play for a teammate. He's doing a really effective job of balancing scoring with playmaking, wisely picking and choosing when to facilitate and when to attack.
His numbers so far reflect an accurate portrayal of what type of player he is. Smart is averaging 14.8 points, eight rebounds, five assists and three steals, contributing all across the board and winning in the process. He torched Lorenzo Brown, one of his direct positional draft competitors, in front of scouts and NBA executives watching the two closely.
Smart's stock has skyrocketed early in the year.
