Hannibal, Mo. - The Men's Basketball Team is pleased to announce the signing of Brady Smith to the 2017/18 recruiting class.  Smith graduates from Licking High School this spring and will become a Trojan this fall.  He is the son of Brad and Teresa Smith from Licking, Missouri.

The Licking High School Coach, Ben Glasgow, shared, "I'm happy to see Brady going to a good school and continuing his basketball career.  Hannibal is getting an outstanding player who has excelled both on the court and in the classroom, and has been a huge source of pride for the entire Licking community."

Earlier this year, Smith was selected to the Frisco League All-Conference Team and the All-District Team.  He averaged 17.8 points per game, 6.3 rebounds per game, 3 assists per game, and 2 steals per game.  Smith is still undecided on his major and was on his high school honor roll all four years.

Coach Jason Durst said, "Brady brings an immediate presence to our program because of his athleticism, ability to score, and academic achievements. We are excited to add him to our 2017 recruiting class."
