College coaches have only been able to contact the class of 2022 since Monday at midnight, but Colin Smith is an early name to keep an eye on. Smith is a four-star on rivals.com and ranked 58th nationally. The 6’7 forward is from Dallas and can just about do it all which is leading to his recruitment blowing up early on.
Smith returned to the court this weekend in Dallas with his AAU team where he played against D1 talent which helped bring some more interest. Although it’s early, it is clear Colin is a high major player and schools are already on him.
The rising junior talked about his early recruitment with me and says he first heard from Vanderbilt. Then later on and overall more programs were in line to talk with him and he has heard from, “Memphis, Michigan, Florida St, Virginia, Vanderbilt, Illinois, Texas Tech, Baylor, Arkansas, Oklahoma St, Univ of Texas, BYU, Texas A&M, Miami, Purdue, Columbia, Harvard, Mississippi St, USC, Butler, UCLA, Stanford, Kansas, Auburn, Minnesota, Georgetown.” He currently holds offers from the schools in bold, and with all this interest from top high major teams, his recruitment won’t be slowing down anytime soon. Of these schools, Michigan is the most recent to offer him.
With his recruitment just starting up, he has sometime until he announces his commitment but when it’s time, he is looking for, “a great fit, family environment and great leadership from coaches.”
Smith already has a long list of schools here, but I fully expect more and more programs to get involved here. Smith stood out this weekend in his first weekend back which caught many peoples eyes. As his AAU season plays out you should start to hear his name come up more and more.
