Athletic 10th Grader Justin Smith Takes Off! Sophomore Season Mixtape!
Justin Smith won an Illinois State title as the only non-senior starter. A sophomore at Lincolnshire Stevenson HS (30-3), Smith excelled alongside All American point guard Jalen Brunson (Villanova).
In the state title game, the athletic 6’7 forward led his team with 7 rebounds and his 12 points were second only to Brunson’s 30. Known for his bounce and jump shooting, Smith has also grown as a defender. For the season, Smith averaged 10.3 points and more than 4 rebounds.
He made nearly two dozen 3-pointers and made 60 percent of his field-goal attempts.
In December, Smith received his first college offer from Rice. Following the HS season, Smith received an offer from Wake Forest. Expect that list of offers to grow exponentially!
