"I am being recruited by UConn, Maryland, Virginia, Kentucky, Vanderbilt and NC State."
"UConn and the University of Kentucky, they are both showing me the most interest. UConn told me that I have a lot of qualities that they want in a wide receiver. They told me that they were waiting to see me in a game before they offer. They went to my last game which was just yesterday. I had a pretty decent game. I had five or six catches. Kentucky has been to practice and they told me that they liked what they saw. I am hoping that I'll get my first offers soon."
On Rutgers and their early season performances
"I saw them against Pittsburgh and they have the potential to be a good team. I heard from Rutgers early, I would really like to hear more from them."
First games this year
I have caught a touchdown pass in each game that I have played (five games). I have 18 or 19 receptions for about 300 yards. We play 10 games so I could hit my goal of 1000 receiving yards.
George went to the Virginia and the Maryland football camps this summer. He is 6-3 1/2 with excellent leaping ability. George was All State, All County and All Metro (Baltimore area) and is noted as having an excellent combination of speed and hands. His 15 touchdowns last year were the result of both that and his ability to break tackles once he catches the ball. George will be going to Hollywood Hills HS in Florida this season after transferring out of Caesar Rodney HS in Maryland. Having been in three high schools in the past three years George has not gotten the attention he deserves and his lack of offers shows that. However, George (a full qualifier) will get a chance to prove himself this season. This year playing Florida football he is sure to come under the gaze of dozens of recruiting coordinators who head to the sunshine state each year to recruit. Expect George Smith's name to pop up on the radars of many of the top schools in the east before this season is over.
