2022 G/F Colin Smith of St. Mark School in Dallas, TX has quietly become one of the best combo wings in Texas.  Standing at 6’7 and just over 200 pounds he is the ultimate package for a combo forward.  One of the most intriguing parts of his game is that he is constantly trying to improve in all areas and spends countless hours in the gym improving.  It will not be long before his hard work and determination position him to be the next big name nationally.  

His ability to get into the paint and draw double teams is his bread and butter.  He can put it on the floor and get to the paint with either hand in the half court.  He has above average court vision and finds teammates for open shots when he needs to give the ball up.  While Smith’s ball handling is still improving, the talented 2022 standout is versatile enough to play multiple positions on the offensive end.  He has developed the ability to step out and shoot the three ball which makes him more difficult to contain due to his ability to score at all levels.  He is also a terrific athlete who can play above the rim and finish with contact and he’s an exceptional offensive rebounder.   

Defensively, he has great footwork and can guard different positions.  He is a physical defender who likes to get up on opposing players and apply tough on ball pressure.  He has a high IQ and plays the passing lanes extremely well and his athleticism allows him to block shots at a high rate for his size as well as be a great rebounder defensively.  Just starting to take off, he’s already had a number of schools jump on his recruiting trail from different parts of the country.  

He holds offers from Arkansas, Baylor, Georgetown, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Mississippi State, Oklahoma State, SMU, Stanford, TCU, Tennessee, Texas, Texas A&M, Texas Tech, UCLA, and Vanderbilt.  This impressive list will only continue to grow as he is steadily improving and making a case to why he is the next big star from Texas.
