Syracuse Keeping Tabs On 2013 PG Dayshon Smith
By Michael McAllister
The point-guard position could be the most important position for Syracuse in the 2013 recruiting class. The Orange have been going hard after Tyler Ennis, and are considered the favorite to land the elite prospect. But Syracuse is keeping an eye on other point-guards as well.
One such player is Dayshon Smith, a 6'2" prospect out of Putnam, Connecticut. Smith says he spoke to Syracuse assistant Adrian Autry recently, who told him Syracuse was going to be following him this summer. While Smith doesn't currently hold an offer from Syracuse, they clearly view Smith as a viable option in certain scenarios.
Smith could be a backup plan if Tyler Ennis doesn't pan out. Or the Orange could be looking at two point-guards in 2013, especially if they view Ennis as only a one or two year player. Two point-guards isn't a likely scenario, but it certainly is possible. Either way, the Orange are interested in Smith's quick first step, ability to score in traffic, and ability to create in the lane.
