Georgia target Shawn Smith recaps visit

Three-star receiver Shawn Smith is a top receiver in Georgia for 2017, and talks about his latest visit to Athens

Shawn Smith is a reciever for Brunswick (Ga) and one of the top recievers in the state.  Listed at 5-foot-11 173-pounds, Smith is not the biggest guy, but he's one of the fastest prospects in the South.  Smith was in Athens this past weekend with teammate and top Georgia target D'ante Demery.

"I would rate my visit to Georegia a 9 out of 10."  Smith said.  "My favorite part of the visit was just bonding with Kirby (Smart)."

Smart made it very clear to Smith that he is wanted in Athens, and hopes he will make more visits in the near future.

"Coach Smart said he would love for me to come play for him and he wants me to come back and camp there and stuff like that."  Smith said.  "I've visited Georgia a lot in the past, so I had to get used to the new coaching staff.  I'm trying to build a strong relationship with the new staff."

Smith belives he has multiple attributes that make him one of the best recievers in the country.

"I think I'm one of the fastest if not the fastest reciever in the country."  Smith said.  "I can change direction well, get seperation from defenders, and I'm very explosive."

The speedy reciever is cousins with former Bulldog commit Deejay Dallas, and the two are very close.  Smith plans on committing soon but also said he's just taking his time.  Miami is the team standing out for Smith at this time.

The 2017 class of recievers in Georgia is somewhat weak compared to other years, so expect Smart to really turn up the heat on Smith in the coming months.
