Hoops recruits garner post-season honors

Well, Buck Fredrick was named Mr.Basketball in SC this season. Ra'Sean Dickey was POY in his classification. Anthony Morrow was the Charlotte Observer's POY and 1st team. Now Jeremis Smith wins the boys POY in his region, was named to the 1st team, was selected 1st team all-state by the Texas Association of Coaches. He was also named the Fort Worth Region POY.

Here is what was written:

Boys Player of the Year I Jeremis Smith F, Dunbar, Sr.

"Before departing for Georgia Tech, the super-strong Smith capped his Dunbar days with career-high averages in scoring (26.1) and rebounding (8.3). In Smith's final three seasons, the Wildcats were a combined 101-6 with three Whataburger Basketball Tournament titles, two state tournament appearances and one Class 4A championship.

With a rare mixture of size, strength, quickness and ball-handling ability, Smith left a giant footprint on Fort Worth-area basketball during his four seasons with the Wildcats. The 6-6 Smith averaged 26.1 points per game in 2003-04 and was selected first-team all-state by the Texas Association of Basketball Coaches."
