I think it could also be that Archie and staff see something they can work with and develop over the summer.  

I love rim protectors, so a 6'10"  kid with 28 blocks in over 100 games played doesn't exactly hit my sweet spot.But if Archie has a vision for him then bring him on.

I think we have that in Jake, although he'll be young.  Smith seems athletic enough he'll get some weak side blocks as well.  After the transformation of the defense last season I believe Archie will have us on track with some of these players.  I would love to have several rim protectors on the roster but we also need the kind that can hedge a ball screen and recover.

I posted this in the Fitzner thread also. Why are we still recruiting for 2018?

A 6-foot-5 shooting guard from Newark, Ark., Reaves started 11 games this past season and averaged 8.1 points, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.0 assists, while shooting 42.5 percent on three-pointers. He set a school record by making seven consecutive three-pointers in the first half against Tulsa in a 90-71 win on Jan. 29.

On-court/off-court splits showed WSU was at its best (0.18 points per possession better than its opponent) when Reaves was on the floor, while advanced stats showed Reaves improved his field-goal percentage around the rim from 40 percent as a freshman to 70 percent as a sophomore.
