Sounds like Smotherman is making some noise in the Best of the Midwest event: Smotherman, by the way, has looked very strong at the Best of the Midwest event, particularly on offense. He had a 20-point game Saturday night as Eric Gordon U17 rolled to a 95-42 win over Indiana Spine. Boiler assistant coach Greg Gary was in Fishers to watch him. Smotherman is not rated as a member of Purdue’s highly regarded Class of 2013, although that could change if the Indianapolis Lawrence North standout continues his strong play. Northrop’s Bryson Scott and Illinois’ Kendall Stephens are ranked in the Boilers Class of 2013. Stephens is at No. 56 nationally by Rivals.com, a national Internet recruiting service, No. 9 at shooting guard. Scott is ranked No. 60 overall, No. 7 among point guards.
