But doesn't he visit Ohio State Friday and/or Saturday? Can't see him committing until after that visit. Probably take the weekend to think about it all with his family.

Is Hondo Carpenter on MSU's payroll as a recruiter? His interview style is to definitely lead with his questions.

The interview with Smith's parents was a bit much.

Can't Wednesdays bleed orange and blue into Thursdays sometimes, as well?

Don't know if we don't still take this kid....seems like a perfect sized guard...definitely a Smith backup, could he be just as good for us?

To the tune of "I Saw Three Ships":

"Four scholarships on Smithmas Day, on Smithmas Day, on Smithmas Day.
Four scholarships on Smithmas Day, on Smithmas Day in the morning.

Only three by Smithmas night, by Smithmas night, by Smithmas night.
Three scholarships by Smithmas night, by Smithmas night if we're lucky."

Loren Tate met Smith as he arrived on campus. Gave him him a signed Bruce Weber picture and his lucky Illini underwear. Smith's were like, nah, we out.
