Tyler Smith to announce basketball future Thursday morning

April 23, 2008

(WVLT) -- Tennessee Vols forward Tyler Smith will hold a press conference at 10 a.m. Thursday morning to announce his basketball plans for next season.

The 6' 7" junior averaged 13.6 points and 6.7 rebounds a game last year for the Orange.

For several weeks, Smith has been considering declaring for the NBA draft. Some NBA scouts say Smith is a first round pick; others say he's a second round selection.

Smith has said he wouldn't declare for the draft unless he was definitely a first round pick.

As of Wednesday afternoon, draftexpress.com projected Smith to be the #3 pick of the second round.
