Mizzou basketball lands transfer G Mark Smith from IL

Mark Smith, the former Edwardsville High School basketball star who played one season at the University of IL, announced Saturday night on Twitter that he has signed with the Missouri Tigers.

According to the St. Louis Post-Dispatch, Yvonne Smith, Mark's mother, said the choice to play for Coach Cuonzo Martin was a "no-brainer".

The 6-foot-4 guard finished the season with averages of 5.8 points, 1.4 rebounds and 1.4 assists per game while shooting 33.7 percent from the field and 23.2 percent on 3-pointers.

Smith was the Gatorade Player of the Year in Illinois, Illinois' Mr. Basketball and the Belleville News-Democrat's Large-School Player of the Year as a senior.

Smith committed to IL one year ago with great expectations but left the program after a disappointing freshman year under first-year coach Brad Underwood.

The Tigers went 20-13 overall this season and advanced for the NCAA Tournament for the first time since the 2012-13 season.

Smith will join former Illini commits Javon Pickett and Jeremiah Tilmon at Missouri.

While playing for the Illini, Smith started 19 games and averaged about six points per game.

In Illinois' 70-64 win against Missouri on December 23, Smith scored 11 points in 25 minutes.
