Jackson South Side's Smith Signs with Greyhounds

Less than 24 hours after announcing their first signee of the spring, the Greyhounds have added their second student-athlete by inking Terrandus Smith to an NJCAA Letter of Intent and Scholarship Agreement Friday at Jackson South Side High School in Jackson, Tennessee.

The athletic 6'3", 175-pound guard helped lead the Class AA Hawks to a 24-2 record as they won their first 23 games in a row and were ranked #1 in the state until losing in the 14-AA Tournament championship game and took their only other loss in the Region 7 Tournament semifinals.

Smith averaged 12.6 points, 4.3 rebounds, 1.3 assists and 3.1 steals per game and was named to the 14-AA All-District team, All-Academic team and Tennessee Prep Hoops 7AA All-Region team for head coach Damonn Fuller. In addition, he was selected as Jackson South Side's Male Athlete of the Year after also earning All-District honors on the baseball field.

As a sophomore, Smith was a member of the 2014 State Championship team at South Side along with his older brother, Terrikous.

"Terrandus is a long, athletic guard who has succeeded in a structured system which I believe will translate well to the college game," said Greyhounds head coach Chris Parker. "He's an outstanding young man who has a high ceiling, and we are very excited about what he will bring to both our team and community," Parker said.

"We are proud of him and know he's going to do great things," added Coach Fuller. "He's a great kid and a winner."
