"I went over to Georgia on Saturday and I had a real good visit," said Smith. "I got to see the spring game, I talked to some of the coaches, and I saw some of the facilities."

This was Smith's second visit to the classic city and he received a lot of attention from the Bulldog coaching staff.

"All the coaches are great at Georgia and they make you feel comfortable. I got to talk with Coach Mark Richt, Coach [Willie] Martinez (DB Coach), Coach [Rodney] Garner (Smith's Recruiting Coach), and Coach [John] Eason (WR Coach) while I was there."
