December, 2008: Smith has incredible length and very good athleticism. He also has the size that could allow him to develop into an elite wing scorer, but he needs to get much stronger. Smith has range on his jumper that extends to the 3-point line, but he has a tendency to rely on that shot too much. When he looks to go to the rim, he tends to over-dribble and hunt down shots, which serves to bring the offense to a halt. Smith almost exclusively operates on the left wing for his offense. A middle game would make Smith even more difficult for defenses to contend with and open up his drive game. He also needs to continue to work on his ball-handling skills. Smith has the length, lateral quickness, and athleticism to become a very good defender, but he only seems to utilize this after he scores a bucket. He also needs to alleviate his tendency to leak out on defense for fast breaks and not use his impressive athletic gifts for defensive rebounding. Added strength would not only help him as a rebounder and defender, it will also aid him on the offensive end when he goes to the bucket.
August, 2008: Smith is a lengthy wing-type for the highest level. He glides in transition and is one of the smoothest finishers around. He has a nice feel for the game as he made a number of nice passes, especially in transition. He can take defenders off the dribble and he can hang in the air for awhile while finishing.
2007: Roscoe is a very long and thin wing. He is skilled. A solid shooter, he can score inside and out. He has very good size and will be a bear once he fills out his body. Weakness is his biggest short coming right now. He is a good slasher and shooter. He is also a good rebounder. Roscoe is a top 25 prospect in the 2010 class nationally.
