The honors continue to roll in for Oklahoma State basketball recruit Marcus Smart.
The latest – first team All-USA by USA Today and an invitation to the 2012 Men’s U18 National Team Training Camp– are big ones.
Smart, who led Flower Mound Marcus High Schoolto a second straight Texas 5A state championship in March, signed with the Cowboys in November. Already he’s being touted as a difference maker for a rebound from a losing season.
Outsiders apparently agree.
The USA Today honor comes after Smart has already been recognized as a McDonald’s All-American, an ESPNHS All-American and the Texas Gatorade Player of the Year, among other awards and recognitions.
Joining Smart on the USA Today squad is Kentucky commitment Nerlens Noel of New Hampshire, the Player of the Year; two UCLA-bound standouts in Kyle Anderson of New Jersey and Shabazz Muhammad of Las Vegas; and high school junior Jabari Parker of Chicago.
USA Today has been handing out its honors annually since 1983. The latest teams (first, second and third) are available in Thursday’s paper and online at http://www.highschoolsports.net/
