Smith commits to Dawgs

Georgia added its fourth commitment of the class of 2005 today. Georgia's summer football camp has been good to the Dawgs in the past and today they got one of the top offensive linemen in Georgia.

Ian Smith committed to Georgia today over Florida State. Smith said that Georgia Head Coach Mark Richt was surprised that he picked the Dawgs this early in the recruiting process.

"He was surprised that I committed so soon, but he supported my decision," said the senior from Cartersville (GA) High School. "I think that he was shocked that I decided to do it so quickly."

Smith's decision is firm enough that he will not visit Florida State or any other schools on recruiting trips. Alabama also had a scholarship offer for the offensive lineman.

"I am done," said Smith of taking visits. "No more visits. I have always been a big fan of Georgia," he said.

Smith's former high school teammate Josh Brock is currently an offensive lineman for the Bulldogs, and Smith said that fact "helped make the decision a little bit easier."

Smith said that he had a good time in Athens for Georgia's summer camp.

"It was fun but it was intense," he said.

Smith joins wide receiver Mohamed Massaquoi, quarterback Joe Cox, and linebacker Marcus Washington as Georgia's current commits.
