Dayshon Smith, a 2013 PG from Putnam Science (CT) is potentially taking a visit to Providence College today. He is on his way to the city of Providence right now, but he told me he was unsure if he was going to take the visit to the school (I’m assuming it would be an unofficial).
He was originally from Rice HS in New York City, but was forced to play elsewhere after the school shut down in July.
Here is a post about “Schoochie” from HoopRootz back in September.
Scoochie’s a high IQ player who knows how to run a club efficiently. He attacks with the bounce and looks to use his court vision to create for teammates. But what makes Smith such a dangerous back-court player is that he also has high-level scoring ability from the point, with a beautiful shooting-stroke off the catch 1-2 and the propensity to pull the trey-ball trigger in transition. He also uses the dribble to go to the basket and will finish at the cup or look for a floater in the lane. As he tightens up his pull-up game and gets stronger, allowing him to play through more contact, Smith’s scoring ability will continue to blossom.
Smith attended the Midnight Madness at St. John’s on Friday night after initially thinking about attending it at Rutgers. He also has interest from Fairfield, Penn State, Manhattan, Quinnipiac, Iona, St. Peters, and Syracuse.
UPDATE: Apparently he did not get to attend St. John’s Midnight Madness, and will NOT be visiting PC today.
