Former Arizona Basketball star Ray Smith graduates from Arizona

Life is funny sometimes. Everything you envision for yourself, rarely turns out exactly how you plan, and those words couldn’t be any more true for former Arizona Basketball player, Ray Smith.

Does the name sound familiar? It should! As you may recall, Smith was a highly-regarded basketball player from the state of Nevada, ranked as the No. 18 overall recruit and the No. 3 overall small forward in the class of 2015 according to 247Sports.

A standout at Las Vegas High School, the sky was the limit for the soon-to-be Wildcat, as many were projecting him to make the NBA.
