Houston, TX (Future150) -- Future150 caught up with 2019 PG Jacob Smith at the Future150 Main Event Houston.  Smith is a familiar face to the Future150 staff as he has attend multiple events over the past couple of years.  He put on a show all weekend long while playing for the Katy Shooting Stars Red program.

When you think about small successful guards in the Southwest region the town of Houston has to come to mind. Two Future150 Alums Carson Edwards of Purdue University and Sahvir Wheeler who holds a Texas AM offer both under 6-feet are extremely dangerous with the ball in their hands. 

Then comes PG Jacob Smith of ProVision Academy out of Houston. He had a huge senior year earning All-State honors while averaging 18 points and 8 assists on the year. Since AAU has started this Spring, he is putting up big numbers averaging 19.5 points, 7 assists and 4 steals per game.

When asked what he was working on in his game, Smith responded "I'm getting in the weight room trying to get stronger and add some weight.  I am working getting up shots daily and learning every day from Coach Leary on how to become a better leader."

Future150's take on the player:  Smith is a super electric player who has a tremendous burst off the bounce.  He can score on all three levels and make it look easy while doing it.  Once he breaks you down off the dribble he has good court vision creating easy opportunities for his teammates.

His recruitiment is starting to kick into high gear and he is visiting Virginia Union on this coming Wednesday followed up by visits to Longwood and Cumberland Ottawa in the near future.  HCBU's schools are starting to pick him up on the radar to go along with other Low D1 programs.  Coaches if you are looking for a point guard don't miss the boat on this prospect.
