Smith Taking His Time

ATLANTA – Geno Smith talks regularly with many high profile 2012 recruits going through the same process he currently is.

One of which is Georgia commit C.J. Curry.

The two text frequently and played one another earlier this fall. Geno Smith and his St. Pius teammates won that battle against North Hall handily.

In fact, Smith took an unofficial visit to Georgia the same weekend Curry, a receiver, pledged to the Bulldogs, and the two were around each other quite a bit.

"I talk to him all the time," Smith said. "I wasn't actually there when he committed, but he texted me about it. He's a pretty cool guy." Still, Smith doesn't plan to follow suit and commit to a school any time soon.

"If the situation is right and the timing feels right, I may commit," he said. "But not right now or anytime soon. I'd like to maybe do it in the offseason before my senior year starts."

Curry is a do-it-all kind of athlete, lining up at running back, receiver, cornerback and on special teams. While he says he's comfortable carrying or catching the football, corner is most likely his intended destination in college.

He currently has offers from Auburn, Georgia Tech. Georgia, Louisville, Virginia Tech, Tennessee and Vanderbilt.

"I'm just blessed," he said. "I'm glad for the abilities God has given me and I'm trying to take advantage of the situation."

Although Georgia's secondary coach Scott Lakatos was on hand for Smith's game last weekend, a 54-0 win over Druid Hills, Smith hears the most from Georgia Tech.

"I talk to (Yellow Jackets inside linebackers) coach Joe Speed the most of all the coaches recruiting me," Smith said.

The process is far from over for Smith, who has visited Florida, Georgia, Alabama among others.
