Our Sandy Ringer spoke with Kentwood two-sport star Joshua Smith, who made the somewhat controversial choice to play football his senior season even though he’s rated by most prep rankings as one of the top 10 basketball players in the nation.
Here’s that story.
Smith said he’s visiting UCLA and did not mention Washington in this report. Despite rumors that he’s favoring the Bruins, the Huskies are believed to still be on his list.
Smith also answered critics who say he’s crazy to play football.
Here’s some other links.
Rivals.com updated its weekly 2010 team recruiting rankings and it’s interesting to note the Pac-10 does not have a team in the top 20. Ohio State is at the top of the list with six commitments from from players ranked between 3-137 on the website’s national list.
Just as a reference, Rivals.com had three Pac-10 schools among the top 25 in its 2009 team recruiting rankings. UCLA (9), Arizona (13) and Washington (22).
— So maybe you’re thinking Rivals.com is whacky with it’s rankings, well, ESPN.com released it’s 2010 team recruiting ranking and yup, you guessed it. Not a Pac-10 team among the top 25.
ESPN.com also puts UCLA 13th on the 2009 list and UW 19. No Arizona.
And ESPN.com says the Huskies are still in the running for Jefferson (Ore.) High F Terrance Jones, Los Osos (Calif.) High PG Kendall Williams and Smith.
