High School: Averaged 15 points, eight rebounds, four assists, three blocks and two steals a game as a senior at Bridgton Academy under coach Whit Lesure. Smith helped lead Bridgton to a 26-11 record and the New England Class A Prep Championship last season. He is noted for his rebounding and court vision enabling him to execute accurate no-look passes and as someone who plays taller than his 6-6 frame. "He's a gifted scorer but could become a tough defender," Lesure said. "Very good rebounder for his size and plays bigger than 6-6. Great kid on and off the floor, very well-regarded by his teachers and peers alike."
