Ryan Jordan:: Alright I got Ian....

Ryan Jordan:: Were ready for questions....

AlDog:: Ian have you been a long time Dawg fan?
Ian Smith:: Pretty much my whole life.

pater15:: what position guard or center?
Ian Smith:: Whichever one they need me at the most. I prefer G, but I'll play C

PaulWesterdawg:: Ian what was the "Deal Closer" for you?
Ian Smith:: Just them offering me. I went into camp saying if they offered that I'd commit

PaulWesterdawg:: What other Players did he hang out with?
Ian Smith:: Drew Elrod and Tarvis Scott from Adairsville. They're really cool. I like them both

GneissDawg:: What is your squat and bench press?
Ian Smith:: I bench 340 and I squat about 440

pater15:: are you planning on a redshirt year?
Ian Smith:: I dont know if they will or not. I'm thinking they'll probably redshirt me though

begger:: How close are he and Josh Brock? How do the two compare as players?
Ian Smith:: Were pretty close. Not the best of friends, but we know eachother. From what my coach says, we kind of pull the same way

PaulWesterdawg:: Any current players? Did he hang with any of them?
Ian Smith:: I didn't really have a chance to meet any of the guys already at Georgia

AlDog:: Are you going to try to recruit some other playrs for us?
Ian Smith:: Yeah. If my guys get offered, I'll go after them

begger:: How are his shoulders? How big is he?
Ian Smith:: My shoulders are fine. I'm about 295 or 300. I fluctuate back and forth

pater15:: what did coach callaway like best about you?
Ian Smith:: They told me from the film that they like the way I run block and pull out on my blocks

GneissDawg:: What kind of offense does your team run?
Ian Smith:: Were pretty much a wing-t and shotgun. That's our bread and butter

GneissDawg:: When you do pull, what position guy are you usually assigned to block?
Ian Smith:: It's usually a DE or a CB. I like to hit the DE's because you get a little more wider area to hit them

AlDog:: Who are some of the players that impressed you at the UGA Camp?
Ian Smith:: I really didn't get a chance to look around but Chris Scott from Lovejoy was there and he was real good.

pater15:: do you think new recruits are impressed by the dorms, were they talking about them?
Ian Smith:: Oh yeah. Those things are nice. I was real impressed with them myself

begger:: What about some of the DL? Both at the camp, and from his high school games?
Ian Smith:: I can't really remember the names, but it was the shorter and quicker DE's that impressed me the most.

Ian Smith:: I just appreciate these guys being interested in me and I hope we have a good year. Thanks!
