Everything I have seen and read suggests Ricks is a “must have”. Smooth.
It will be interesting to see how Nick Smith develops over the next 12 months. Some say he is ahead of where Ricks was at this stage.
Arkansas high school talent continues to impress through the class of 2022. Just wish Arkansas produce more bigs than it has. For guards, I don’t think Mike has to travel far to stock his roster.
Ricks has all the tools. He has a chance to be very highly recruited.
I’m going to have to head around the corner and check him out.
Nick Smith has a chance to be the next big thing.
I watched them last week at Cabot. I predict they’ll both be highly recruited unless they have character or grade issues.
I was shocked when I heard Smith was a 9th grader. There aren’t many 9th graders out there with his skills. He can shoot outside and can take it to the rim. Good ball handler as well.
Both are very skinny, but plenty of time to fill out.
