Player Profile: NyRhique Smith (Asbury Park, NJ)

Name: NyRhique Smith

Hometown: Asbury Park, NJ

Position: Combo Guard

Class: 2016

Size: 6’2

Event: John Lucas Middle School Combine

Analysis: The nation got a chance to see how Smith earned the nickname “La Smoove”. He made things look so easy while making plays. His all around game including scoring and superb court vision seemed to dazzle spectators at times. Smith has a unique craftiness to his game and his ability to use both hands to score or pass makes him difficult to contain on this level. Some special players have the foresight of seeing the play before it develops and he seems to be one of them. He tops our list of combo guards.
