J.T. Smith returns for his sophomore season after starting all 33 games at the point guard position as a freshman. The 6'3" speedster averaged 3.4 points, 3.8 rebounds and 2.9 assists per game while often guarding the opponents' best guard each game.

A four-sport letterman at Riverview High School located in Searcy, Arkansas, Smith established himself as one of the greatest athletes in school history by earning All-State honors in both football and basketball while helping the Raiders win the 4x100 relay at the state track meet. Smith chose to attend Kilgore College (TX) to play football as a wide receiver and redshirted in 2018-19 before choosing to transfer to ASU Mid-South to resume his basketball career.

The three-time All-State basketball star made an immediate impact for Head Coach T.J. Coleman, leading the Raiders to the state tournament as a sophomore and a senior while being named to the All-State Tournament Team on both occasions. Earning All-Conference honors all four years of high school, Smith averaged 21.5 points, 5.1 rebounds, 7.2 assists and 3 steals per game as a senior, leading Riverview to a 26-10 overall record while going 12-4 in the 4A-2 conference. Then in the state tournament semifinals against three-time state champion Baptist Prep, Riverview led by 1 with less than 4 seconds remaining before Kansas-signee Isaac McBride hit a 27-foot buzzer beater to end the Raiders' season.

Smith has a history of reaching another level of offensive output in the playoffs. As a junior, he put up a career-high 45 points in a district tournament loss, and overall averaged 17.5 points, 4.5 rebounds, 4 assists and 2.5 steals per game.
