Marshall men's basketball: Herd picks up verbal commitment
The Marshall men's basketball team has received a verbal commitment from forward Shawn Smith from City College of San Francisco, sources said.
Smith is a 6-foot-6, 220-pound sophomore at CCSF. Before attending the junior college, he was a 2011 all-Metro Conference first-team selection at McClatchy High School in Sacramento, Calif. According to NorCalPreps.com, Smith averaged 15.3 points, 6.1 rebounds and 1.3 assists at McClatchy in 2010-11. He also was a first-team all-Metro Conference wide receiver in 2010 for McClatchy.
Verbal commitments are non-binding, but the NCAA early signing period for men's basketball begins Nov. 14.
