Smith averaged 21.8 points per game last season and helped lead Trinity to the North Carolina Independent Schools 1A semifinals. Markelle Fultz Is The Latest Star From DeMatha Catholic Hyattsville (Md.) DeMatha Catholic senior shooting guard Markelle Fultz had perhaps one of the top five performances of the sum- mer at the Under Armour All-American Bas- ketball Camp in Charlotte, N.C. Fultz created a strong buzz July 9 when he scored 19 points in front of NC State assistant coach Bobby Lutz, but then erupted in his evening game.'s No. 23 overall prospect in the class of 2016 went off for 35 points on 11-of-18 shooting. Fultz ended up leading the camp in scoring at 22.8 points per game, and earned offers from Kentucky, California and North Carolina in the process. NC State has been recruiting Fultz hard since offering him Feb. 8. Wherever Fultz played during the July evaluation period, odds were good that a Wolfpack coach was tracking him.

Fultz officially visited Louisville Aug. 5-7 and Arizona Aug. 10-12. NC State will try to aim for one of his three other trips. Fultz said he has been working on his out- side jumper with his trainer, and shot 9 of 22 Sometimes, adding just the right person to a team makes all the difference.
