Like virtually all students early in their college careers, there’s a period of time when you have to learn how to properly take notes, manage time and figure out the grind.

Well, as we can tell from Smith’s tweets, he’s figuring it all out the best he can.

Smith has been tweeting about learning how to take notes, nutrition info and also understanding that while he’s off to a disappointing start, he can get better.

Some people might want to take cracks at Smith for being so public about his struggles transitioning to life as a college kid after going to the NBA from high school.

I’m not one of them. I hated the classroom portion of college. I love learning, but I hated going to class. There are a lot of people like me.

So, I totally understand why Smith isn’t picking up everything immediately.

Yet, he’s committed to getting the job done and improving. At the end of the day, you can’t really ask for much more.

Once he gets the classroom portion down, he can go out and ball out on the golf course. That’s where the content is really going to be.
