After a strong summer showing, 2022 four-star forward Colin Smith has set three official visits. According to Max Feldman of Front Office Guru, the 6-foot-8 standout will visit Juwan Howard and the Michigan Wolverines the weekend of Sept. 24.
The visit coincides with the Wolverines’ homecoming weekend, including a home football game against Rutgers on Sept. 25. It won’t be Smith’s first time in Ann Arbor, as he visited Michigan during its upset of Michigan State at Crisler Center in Feb. 2020. He also attended two of the Wolverines’ basketball camps under former head coach John Beilein despite living in Texas.
Prior to Michigan’s homecoming, Smith will visit Arizona State on Sept. 2 and Vanderbilt on Sept. 17, while he’s still exploring the possibility of seeing Illinois, Stanford and Georgia Tech in person. Smith’s former high school teammate and longtime Michigan target Harrison Ingram, a class of 2021 five-star wing, is a freshman at Stanford. Smith recently transferred to play high school basketball for Arizona Compass Prep, and he suits up on the AAU circuit for Adidas-sponsored Southern Assault.
With Dug McDaniel and Tarris Reed already in the fold, Smith would fill a need as an elite 3-point shooting wing in the Wolverines’ 2022 recruiting class. Jett Howard is widely anticipated to join the group, but he and Smith play differently. While both are good jump-shooters, Howard is more of a secondary playmaker in the backcourt while Smith skews more towards the stretch ‘4’ mold. He’s ranked No. 107 on the 247Sports composite.
