If it feels like Hakeem Smith has been at UofL forever, well he pretty much has! He got here in 2009 and red-shirted. As a freshman in 2010, Smith did not start against UK in the first game of the season. He has started EVERY GAME SINCE! Yes, that is correct.

He was also named Big East Newcomer of the Year in 2010.
