    Malachi Smith, the 6-foot combo guard from St. Raymond’s of The Bronx, has set his announcement date.

    Smith will declare on Aug. 29, he told ZAGSBLOG.

    Dayton, Georgetown, Oklahoma State, Rutgers and Washington State are among the schools involved.

    “Malachi Smith is a great all-around player,” said St. Ray’s coach Jorge Lopez. “He is one of the best at breaking down defenders and finishing at the basket through contact.  The most impressive part of his game is his ability to pass in traffic.  He is always one step ahead and is consistent at making the right plays for his teammates.  

    “During the off-season, Malachi has spent a tremendous amount of time improving on his 3-point shooting and mid-range game.  He is the type of player who will have an immediate impact on a team, wherever he decides to go.”
