The Husker men’s basketball team marked the first day of the spring signing period by welcoming Seward County Community College transfer Leslee Smith into the fold. Smith, a native of the Virgin Islands, played his high school basketball in Texas and originally signed with SMU. After two years there, he went to Seward County for the 2012-2013 season, in which he averaged 8.3 points per game and led the team in rebounding. The 6’8”, 250 pound forward will compete for minutes in the post next season.
“I’m fired up about signing Leslee Smith,” Head coach Tim Miles said. “He is an intelligent young man with great maturity and is an excellent student. As a player, he possesses the athleticism and skill to flourish in our style of play. I think his versatility will also be an asset for us. We think he can play a variety of positions. His experience at SMU is key because he understands about the regimentation, the training and competition to play at this level. Today is a big day for Husker Basketball.”
