Garrison Smith, from Douglass High School in Atlanta (GA) is 6-3 and 255-pounds and has a chance to be an every down defensive lineman with his ability to play inside or outside depending on formation.
"We get out of school right at 3:15 p.m. and then we go get ready for football practice," he said. "We normally take the field at 4:30 p.m. and most times don't finish until 7:00 p.m. so it makes for a very long day. The pads will go on for the first time on Tuesday and I can't wait because I just want to hit someone."
Garrison has offers from Oklahoma, Georgia, Alabama, Florida, LSU and many more and can play anywhere in the country. He has yet to visit the Gators but maintains that will quickly change once June arrives. Florida, Alabama, Oklahoma State, LSU and Oklahoma have stopped by to date with many more schools on the way.
Many players have the Gators at or near the top at this time. Florida is right there with LSU and Georgia for Smith. Like so many others that have the Gators at or near the top of their board it will be very important to get these players on campus and Garrison is no different. When players have this amount of interest in particular teams without visiting they normally come away even more impressed and it will go a long way in determining where he and they end up.
