Tyreek Smith, a four-star power forward prospect out of the 2019 recruiting class, has an official visit lined up with the Houston Cougars. This news was relayed to the masses on the mean streets of Twitter by Stockrisers reporter Jake Weingarten, who mentioned the visit will take place this weekend.
Smith was actually originally committed to play for the Texas A&M Aggies, but that commitment came way back in September, and well before the program’s coaching change.
While most reputable recruiting service websites do have Tyreek Smith pegged as a four-star caliber player, they all agree he’s just outside being one of the 100 best prospects in the 2019 class. This is largely because he’s a relatively smaller power forward, standing 6-foot-8, but it undercuts how athletic he is to the point it offsets any size issues.
In 2018 for Trinity Christian, Smith averaged around 20 points and 13 rebounds per game. He led Trinity Christian to the TAPPS 5A state championship game in March of that year.
The Houston Cougars might end up getting one of the best remaining 2019 prospects. Only time will tell, though.
