Kendall Smith Cuts It To 3
Coast 2 Coast Hoops has broken the news that 2013 Deer Valley (CA) point guard Kendall Smith, has cut his list to UConn, UNLV and UCLA. The 6-foot-3, 185 pounder broke down the remaining three schools with us.
UConn: "UConn has a great program with great history. Kemba Walker is one of my favorite point guards and Marcus Williams' dad is my AAU coach and I've worked out with Marcus a few times. I also love Coach (Kevin) Ollie, he's a great coach and a christian."
UNLV: "UNLV is close to home and I like their style of play. They let there guards push the ball. I could be be an instant impact there and get a lot of early minutes as a freshman. I would be a big help physically."
UCLA: "UCLA is another school with great tradition. Russell Westbrook is my favorite player and they sent him to the NBA. Ben Howland is a great coach and he can help get me to the NBA. They provide a good situation for me (playing time)."
Kendall later added that he has no official visit dates set yet but may visit UConn on December 29th and UNLV on January 3rd.
Expect a decision sometime in January.
