Smith Feels Like a "Priority" at Georgia

It feels good to be made a big deal of - at least in recruiting.

That’s the way Macon County LB Roquan Smith left after his official visit to Georgia over the weekend.

“Georgia made me feel like a priority,” Smith said of his trip to Athens.

Smith is seen as one of the must-get uncommitted recruits remaining in the 2015 class for the Bulldogs. Georgia is losing its top two inside linebackers, and Smith seems to be a candidate to play right away next fall for the Bulldogs - making his recruitment very critical.

“I enjoyed the experience,” Smith said. “It was my parents’ first time, and they met with Coach Richt. They thought he was a great guy. They liked it there.”

Smith is the top uncommitted player in Georgia, which only ramps up the intensity of his recruiting situation. Georgia’s staff tried to may the most of their time with Smith by setting him up to be hosted by freshman linebacker Lorenzo Carter and by showing him how he would be used if he were to choose to play in Silver Britches.

“I hung out with Lorenzo and all the other recruits there. We had fun,” he said.“I met with the coaches, and we watched film to see how I'd fit in the defense. They showed me what I'll play and how they will utilize me in different ways. We were talking about their coverages and they showed how he want me to take on lineman and different things of that nature.”

Football not withstanding, Smith said he’s drawn most to the people in Georgia’s organization.

“The best thing about Georgia for me is just the place and the people there,” he said.

Smith said that he still plans on a Singing Day decision on February 4th, which is only seven weeks away from today.
