The 6-foot-8 Smith previously said he is considering Duke, Georgetown and UConn but in this interview he mentions seven schools.

SELBY VISITING ARIZONAJosh Selby will visit Arizona Jan. 9-11 and his mother, Maeshon Witherspoon, told the Arizona Daily Star that Selby has a longstanding relationship with Arizona assistant Book Richardson, a former coach with the New York Gauchos.
“Book and Sean Miller have always had an eye on Josh,” Witherspoon told the Daily Star. “It was always a question of whether we would [look into] Arizona. Josh and coach Book actually sat down and talked. It could be a good fit with Nic Wise leaving.”
Miller recruited Texas A&M guard Naji Hibbert, Selby’s former teammate with DeMatha Catholic and Team Melo, Pascoe reported.
Arizona is also involved with Oak Hill guard Doron Lamb and Detroit guard Ray McCallum.
Selby, who is also considering Kansas, Kentucky, Syracuse, Miami and Indiana, plays for Baltimore (Md.) Lake Clifton. Rivals reported that he will visit Kansas the weekend of Feb. 14; KU plays Iowa State Feb 13.
Rivals also reported that Witherspoon has recently been in touch with UConn head coach Jim Calhoun and that the Huskies could be back in the mix.
