Reggie Smith Marquette

According to a late Sunday night tweet from ESPN recruiting analyst Paul Biancardi, Marquette freshman point guard Reggie Smith is rumored to be transferring out of the program.  With the first semester wrapped up, this is when most mid-season transfers occur in college basketball.  If this rumor is indeed true, it really does not hurt Marquette that much with the start of Big East play on the horizon.

UPDATE (10:20 a.m.): Marquette has confirmed that Smith is transferring.
