Looked pretty solid in those clips. I wouldn't be mad if we added him to the mix.

I wish he was 7'4 instead of 6'4
He does look pretty good...and I've heard a bit about him recently...but we are sooooo guard heavy.

Synopsis is Depaul offered, Northwestern, Bruce and KSU, and us are all coming in hard with interest.

Smith is a former Missouri baseball commit, but he is focused on playing basketball at the next level now. And while the Illini have backcourt options for the future, this one will be interesting to follow given Smith's athleticism, toughness and ability to attack off the dribble -- three things the Illinois roster could use.

I likey what I saw but I am always a sucker for the downstate players or as I like to call them Illinois players vs the Chicago players.
The Chief will live forever in the hearts of all Illini fans!

We have the room, I would take him.  He's 6'4'' so he could play the 1, 2 or 3. Looks to be a good athlete, good passer and good ball handler.  Can never have too many of those.
