    Scott Smith, Iowa State basketball recruit, murdered in Kansas City

    Anyone know more about this? Here's from the KCTV5 report:


    Less than 24 hours before his death, Scott Smith learned that he had received a full scholarship to play basketball at Iowa State University. Family and friends of Smith, a 2011 Center High School graduate, gathered Sunday night at the site of his death to remember the 19-year-old.

    Whatever the whole story is, that's a horrible story.

    Perhaps they got ISU confused with another university?

    I've never ever seen that name, so that may be the case.

    Sad story. Kansas City is a very violent city. This type of thing happens multiple times each weekend unfortunately.

    hard to get much from google when your name is scott smith and you played at center high school. perhaps he was an option for the unused scholly this year - 6'1" PG.

    This was the first time I tried scout.com, and I didn't get anything.

    Re: Scott Smith, Iowa State basketball recruit, murdered in Kansas City

    Yes, sad, sad story, regardless of whether or not he was indeed a future Cyclone, and sorry to say it's the same story with different names and faces in different cities every weekend it seems.

    Didn't we have a football recruit or maybe even a commit in Southern Florida a year or two ago who met a similar fate?

    Is he a 2011 recruit? The story says he's 19. I doubt we'd just now be offering a 2011 PG recruit who doesn't even show up in the Rivals database.

    Yeah I remember something along those lines. Seems like he was shot leaving some high school event.
