Interesting news on Josh Smith

Some interesting news about the recruitment of Kentwood center Josh Smith breaking this morning as Dave “Softy” Mahler at KJR-AM is reporting that Oklahoma is now a contender for his services along with UCLA and UW.
Mahler said that Sooners coach Jeff Capel is apparently due in for a visit this weekend. There are reports that UCLA coach Ben Howland was in town for a visit in the last few days and that UW coach Lorenzo Romar will also make a visit this weekend.
With the early signing day now just two months it’s beginning to hit a critical time in the recruitment for Smith, generally regarded as not only the top prospect in the state for the Class of 2010 but among the best big men in the nation (here’s his profile from Scout.com).
It had long been regarded as a two-team race for Smith between UW and UCLA, and he is reported to be visiting UCLA the weekend of Oct. 3-4. The apparent addition of Oklahoma to the mix obviously muddies the waters a bit and means there may not be quite as quick a resolution to his situation as was once thought.
