Nick Smith Jr. impresses Biancardi in Chicago

Five-star Arkansas basketball signee Nick Smith Jr. continued to add to his resume with an MVP performance at the Jordan Brand Classic on Friday with ESPN national recruiting director Paul Biancardi sitting courtside.

Smith had 27 points, 3 rebounds and 4 assists while shooting 7 of 13 from the floor, 5 of 7 from three-point range and 8 of 8 at the free throw line at the event in Chicago.

“He just comes with a mindset that it’s all business and it’s hard for kids to do that,” said Biancardi, who was part of the broadcasting team for the game.
