Two pieces of news on Josh Smith, the highly ranked prospect out of Washington who recently signed a letter of intent with the Bruins.

First, there is a report from the Pacific Northwest that he suffered an injury and will have an MRI, though he did not sound worried.


Second, he told Dime Magazine that he isn’t disheartened by UCLA’s 2-5 record so far.

‘Not at all,’ he said. ‘A lot of teams go through rebuilding years.’

And he doesn’t seem to mind being associated with a down program.

‘I’m proud that I picked the school,’ he said. ‘I still tell people to wait and see what they do when conference play starts.’
