Trey Smith has done his homework and knows that blood clots are among the potential side effects of COVID-19. The preseason All-American guard already has dealt with blood clots in his own college career. Smith believes that keeps him safer than other 21-year-olds on college campuses. Smith says a regular person is at higher risk for a blood clotting disorder than he is due to the medication he currently takes.
