Reggie Smith Transferring From Marquette

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.

99 in 99: #33 Marquette Golden Eagles

Marquette basketball

I realize I might be homering a tad bit by placing Marquette this high especially when my college hoops man-crush Jay Bilas picked them to finish 10th in the Big East.  Low outside expectations are nothing new to a Golden Eagle team that has not finished lower than 5th place in the Big East since entering the conference in 2005-2006.  So on second thought, I think 33rd is a perfect pre-season fit for MU.

Be warned; this edition of our “99 in 99” college basketball preview series is not like the others.  It is wordy, nerdy, and more in-depth than the others.  But it is my team… so deal with it.  Click here if you missed teams #34-#99.
