Smotrycz updates - From DJ

RT @insidemdsports Smotrycz: “I kind of grew up on Maryland. They were dominant when I was younger and that was always something I had in the back of my mind.”
He has been through the recruiting process before, so he knows what to say and what not to say when on an official visit.  I’m not sure if I should take this too seriously, especially given the sentence prior, but it definitely sounds good for MD.

Abner Logan went back and forth with IMS as well on Smotrycz last night before his official started today and said that he is good, just needs the PT.  Of course, that is a fball player evaluating a bball player so take it for what you want, but he said that he played with him in HS so he knows he can play.
I haven’t seen much else regarding Butler outside of that one random visit, so I’m not sure where that stands.  Perhaps he was in the area and decided to check it out to evaluate all the options.  Nevertheless, it sounds good for MD on Smotrycz.  Maybe Turge can lock him up a la Layman where he will commit on the spot and decide to not take anymore official visits.


  1. I love the "I grew up on MD" line. I will be curious to see how the visit goes this weekend. Lets hope he cancels the others and becomes a Terp

  2. Yeah I really like that line too, but you know I have no idea whether or not he's being true with it or saying it for the press. I'd wager a guess MD was good when he was in middle school/freshman year of HS, because after 04 it has been up and down.

    But I hope he falls in love with MD this weekend and decides it is for him, he would add so much versatility to the lineup. Having a stretch four that is able to come in and knock down 3s really can screw up a teams defense.

  3. I'm buying some Sumatra coffee this weekend for good luck! what a complimentary addition Smotrycz would be - he would fit right in with his type of game.
