The Hokies have apparently picked up a transfer – Adam Smith from unc-hollywood (aka unc-wilmington — did you know Wilmington, NC has the 2nd largest film studio, behind only LA?). Smith, a former 3-star recruit according to Rivals.com from Fayetteville, GA, averaged 13.7 ppg for the seahawks as a freshman this past season. He’ll have to sit out the 2012-13 season, but will have 3 years of eligibility left after that.
Smith’s 13.7 ppg were good for 2nd on a unc-dub team that finished 10-21, including 5-13 in the soon to be depleted Colonial (vcu just announced they are going to the A-10 and george mason likely isn’t far behind). Adam hit 58/175 3-pointers (33%) which is solid, but just 38% overall from the field (92/221 on 2-pointers — 42%). He made 82% of his free throws.
Smith is just 5’11″, and isn’t a point guard (just 1.6 assists per game). We shall see if he can be successful in the ACC. He’ll likely need to be a perimeter player.
