Quick Josh Smith Update

Smith UCLA visit copy
Just a quick Josh Smith recruiting update today. . . I reported earlier this week that Josh had cancelled this weekend’s visit to UCLA. Well, according to Scout.com’s premium site, it turns out that he’s rescheduled the visit for the weekend of October 3rd. He’ll be heading down with guard recruits Ray McCallum and Tyler Lamb. /

So much for thinking the cancellation of this weekend’s trip was a good sign. And, yes, I know I’m giving a lot of coverage to a recruit many feel is a done deal with UCLA, but I’m holding out hope. Big men like Josh don’t come along often, and I’m still of the belief that until he commits otherwise, he might decide that playing before his family and friends makes more sense than all the hubbub that comes with living in LA.

For the record, 85% of readers who voted in our poll felt that, even if Smith goes one-and-done in school they’d still rather see him at UW than UCLA.

I’ll pass along whatever comes up over the weekend, and I’ve got an interview with a current Husky that I’ll post on Tuesday, once most people are back from the long weekend.
