Smith is a Hoya

January 2, 2012 - It's official, 6'10", center Josh Smith has decided Hoyadom is for him. A transfer from UCLA, Smith will enroll at Georgetown as soon as the semester starts,leaving him with 1.5 years of eligibility, time that will start the beginning of 2014.

After announcing he was leaving Westwood in November, HoyaReport.com reported Smith understood his next destination would be key to a successful college career. As he put it, "It's either put up or shut up".

Weighing over 300 pounds and owning great feet and hands, plus a solid big man skill set, Smith will immediately provide the Hoyas size down low, though he must further develop his basketball conditioning to maximize impact. While redshirting, expect him to push the current Hoya 'bigs' in practice, and when available, function not only in the low, but high posts.

Welcome Mr. Smith; this is a win-win for all parties involved.
