USFNation.com: How was your experience at the Elite 11 camp?
QB Eugene Smith: It was a very good experience. The competition was great, I got to go against the top talent in the country.
USFN: What did you work on while you were out there?
Geno: I worked a lot on proper footwork on my drop and my release. It was more a chance to show people what you got.
USFN: What was it like for you and Aaron Murray to represent Florida?
Geno: It meant a lot to show that Florida has more than just speed, they have some good quarterbacks as well. I think we represented Florida and made a statement.
USFN: What are your plans for the rest of the summer?
Geno: Just to work out with my team. We start practice in a week or two. It's time to prepare for the season, get everyone on the same page. I feel like we are close as a team, most of us have been on this team for two years and we just want to be in rhythm by the time we start.
USFN: Have you set any personal or team goals?
Geno: Personal goals don't mean too much. As far as the team goes, we have a goal and it's to get to State's this year.
USFN: What's going on in recruiting, anything new?
Geno: Nothing really that new, just receiving mail from the schools that have offered me. I really don't talk to coaches that much, they mostly go through my high school coach.
USFN: What college would you say you talk with the most?
USFN: Do you have a group of favorites right now?
Geno: There are a group, I'm pretty much open. But there are about 10 schools I'm looking at real hard. I'm not ready to name favorites, but there are a few schools I'm looking at.
USFN: Besides USF are there any other in-state schools you are looking at?
Geno: Florida State and Florida are part of the group of schools I'm looking at.
USFN: What are some of your thoughts on the program at South Florida?
Geno: It's a great program, up and coming. They have a lot of talent and good coaching. USF is coming off a big season, I think they were up to number two in the nation last year. I like that they are on the rise, they have a very strong recruiting class that they are putting together this year and I'm expecting big things from South Florida.
USFN: USF has been on you for a while, how is your relationship with Coach Larry Scott?
Geno: Me and Coach Scott, we have a good relationship. I like him a lot, he's a very funny guy, we chat every now and then. He keeps me up to date with things that are going on at USF, but he makes a lot of jokes and we have fun.
USFN: As a quarterback, do you see your style of play fitting in with USF's offense?
Geno: I do, but I also feel that every offense is built around the quarterback. I'm a pretty versatile guy and feel like I can fit into any offensive system.
USFN: What is your timetable and plan for making a decision?
Geno: My plan is to make all my visits and talk to as many people as I can. Eventually it will be a gut feeling and that's when I'll decide.
USFN: Is staying in-state important to you?
Geno: I really don't know because I thought I wouldn't get homesick if I went away, but just from going to California for a few days I was kinda homesick. I really don't know right now if I want to go that far.
USFN: If you plan to take all your visits, does that mean you'll make your decision after the season?
Geno: I'm pretty sure I'll already have my decision in mind by the time my season is over, but I will be announcing it on Signing Day.
USFN: You said you want to take all your visits, any school in particular that you know you'll visit?
USFN: You just named 6, you know you can only take 5 official visits?
Geno: Yeah, I'll have to narrow that down. I'll figure that out, this is just the beginning for me.
