Fresno State's New Center of Attention

October 21, 2009 10:50:40 PM PDT
Steve Cleveland is hoping a true freshman center from Fresno will be the missing ingredient this season that gets the Bulldogs over the hump and competing for a conference championship again.Six-foot-10-inch, 250-pound Greg Smith or "JuJu" Smith, as he was known during his dominating high school days at Edison just might be Fresno State's best post player since Melvyn Ely roamed the paint for Jerry Tarkanian.

The blue chip recruit gives Cleveland the all-around inside presence he's longed for since taking over the program five years ago. Smith, who turned down scholarship offers from a number of pac-10 schools, says he's looking forward to suiting up for the Bulldogs this season.
