2023 DeShawn Harris-Smith Offered


Recommended Posts

Hoosiers extended an offer to 2023 DeShawn Harris-Smith yesterday. He is a 6’5” wing out of the basketball factory that is Paul VI High School outside of Washington, DC, and he plays with Team Takeover on the Nike EYBL circuit during the spring/summer.

A 4-star recruit according to virtually all recruiting services, he has received offers from the likes of Villanova, LSU, Texas Tech, Georgetown, St. John’s, Xavier, Virginia Tech, and Rutgers, among others.

Here's the full breakdown of his game: Player Evaluation.

That is quite the player evaluation.

Then you are not very familiar with the DC basketball scene. This is a very well known program.

I guess 

school opened in 1983 

 

sadly as a “LITTLE” I’m familiar with  DC….schools, parking and the purple line

A strong physical slasher, who can't shoot threes (24%).

For me, if a player can't shoot from the outside, he's not a guard.

I understand the value of such a player.  Especially for defense. 

But I'd really like to sign kids who shoot 45% from three, since it's such an area of need for us.  We've been at or near the bottom of Big Ten shooting for 5 years in a row.

No more guards that shoot in the 20's from 3, no, no, no.

Coaching staff 4 deep for this kid this morning according to Rabby. I'd say he's a priority for 23. My only thing is this. Kupps, Newton....the guys with eligibility who will likely be returning....seems like we would be maybe prioritizing bigs in case we are out of the Xavier sweepstakes.

Of course the opposite could be said. We feel very comfortable on X that's why they are adding another wing.

I think you are correct. Could be looking to get a commit at or shortly after his upcoming visit.

They're recruiting at very least Power and Page hard. So it's not as though they're putting all their eggs in the Booker basket.

Sounds like another IU recruit from Paul VI, Stanford Robinson. (although Robinson transferred to Findlay Prep)

Interesting comparison!  I had to look him up.  He was a Top 60 national recruit.  6'4" 195 lbs. 

For his IU career, he shot under 12% from three.  Around 40% overall.

Looks much better than Stanford Robinson to me. It helped watching the video embedded in this profile: https://www.insidethehall.com/recruit-profile-deshawn-harris-smith/

And reading this evaluation: https://www.pointguardeyes.com/deshawn-harris-smith
