*** UPDATE: ESPN Recruiting Insider Jeff Borzello reports that Smith will no longer visit Colorado, instead opting to visit Oklahoma State. That looks to be a good sign for the Cowboys. ***
Cal State Northridge grad transfer Kendall Smith is no longer planning to visit Colorado. He'll instead head to Oklahoma State for a visit.— Jeff Borzello (@jeffborzello) April 19, 2017
With only two true point guards on the roster for next season, sophomore Brandon Averette and incoming freshman Zach Dawson, newly-appointed Cowboy Basketball coach Mike Boynton is surely on the look-out for another to add some much needed depth.
That depth might already be on his way to Stillwater.
According to Jeff Goodman of ESPN, Cal State Northridge graduate transfer guard Kendall Smith is scheduled to visit Oklahoma State next week.

Smith will also visit Colorado on Wednesday and Butler next week. He’s reportedly also considering Cal and North Carolina State.
As a Junior, Smith averaged career highs in points (16.8), assists (4.8), and rebounds (4.0) per game, and had career high shooting percentages including from three (.375%) and from the line (.762%). His career year earned him a spot on the All-Big West Second Team last season.
Smith actually began his career at UNLV, where he was the Mountain West Freshman of the Year in 2014.
As a graduate transfer, Smith would be immediately eligible to compete for OSU next season, which would add a third true point guard to the roster.
