The CSU men’s basketball team signed the Colorado Class 3A

Player of the Year and two Texas guards to letters of intent

Wednesday, according to an athletic department release.

Jason Smith, a 7-foot forward from Kersey, averaged 20 points,

10 rebounds and five blocked shots for Platte Valley High School as

a junior last year.

TheInsidersHoops.com, a recruiting Web site, rated Smith the

sixth best big man in the West. Oregon, Gonzaga, Wyoming and Utah

also recruited Smith.

“He will enable us to play two or possibly even three big guys

at the same time,” coach Dale Layer said in the release.

The Rams also signed shooting guard Sean Morris, brother of CSU

sophomore guard Michael Morris. Sean Morris, a 5-10 guard, averaged

17 points, four rebounds and three assists for Cinco Ranch High

School in Katy, Texas, last season.

CSU also signed Morris’ teammate, point guard Charlie Jones.

Jones and Morris led Cinco Ranch to back-to-back district titles

and a 30-6 record. Jones averaged eight points, two steals and four

rebounds last season and has a 3.7 grade point average at Cinco

Ranch.
