Andy Katz Update

Andy Katz has an article up on looking at a few different things in college hoops. Of note:

- Tyler Smith joining Tennessee this season. As I mentioned previously, this makes Tennessee a top contender this year. Katz talked to Pearl, and they will go with three guards, making a starting lineup of JaJuan Smith, Ramar Smith, Chris Lofton, Wayne Chism, and Tyler Smith. That is a solid, solid team. A bit undersized, with Chism at 6-9 and Tyler Smith at 6-7 and the other three little guys, but still. Watch out.

- David Lighty of Ohio State has been a big hit with the USA Basketball Under 19 team. Bruiser Flint, an assistant on the team, expects Lighty to have a breakout season for the Buckeyes, which is not great news for the rest of the Big Ten.

- A few other pieces, including more praise for freshman DeAndre Jordan (Tex A&M) and Johnny Flynn (Syracuse), the fact that TaJuan Porter (Oregon) can't play point, and some other stuff that isn't very interesting.
