Gonzaga Lands Top Transfer Malachi Smith From Chattanooga

Malachi Smith, a former Chattanooga guard and the one of the top available players in college basketball’s transfer portal, announced Thursday via his social media that he is committing to Gonzaga.

“I wanted to have a chance to play for a Hall of Fame coach in Mark Few, to be a part of a winning culture, for a team that has a family feel," Smith wrote.

Smith, the Southern Conference Player of the Year, received interest from Louisville, Texas Tech, DePaul and Stanford after entering the transfer portal in late April but ultimately made the decision to play for Few and the Bulldogs.
