Kansas, Georgetown lead Josh Smith's transfer options

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-US PRESSWIRE

The former Bruins center could be looking to transfer to Kansas after weight and conditioning issues at UCLA.

Former UCLA center Joshua Smith could be headed to Kansas or Georgetown via transfer, less than a month after having been released by the Bruins. According to the L.A. Times, the two schools are the leading interested schools in accepting a transfer, while Smith is also interested in Washington.

The former Bruins center quit the basketball team in late November after having been plagued by weight and conditioning issues for most of his career with the program. The junior was released after having not practiced because of reported weight issues, with the center listed at 6'10 and more than 300 pounds.

The former top recruit out of Washington reportedly wants to return to his home state to resume his basketball career, but is unlikely to be allowed to transfer within the Pac-12.

The Bruins (8-3) are coming off three straight wins and next take on Fresno State on Dec. 22, with tipoff set for 10 p.m. CT.
