For those of you who thought Roquan Smith’s decision to forego signing a NLI with Georgia was some evidence of him being a prima donna, he won’t even talk about it now.
And now, he flat out refuses to discuss the whole UCLA debacle. I tried several times to get him to share some details about the experience and his interactions with them since, to no avail.
“I don’t really have a comment on that; I’m just going to let it lay where it lay,” Smith said. “I try not to remember that day. I’m just happy to be a Georgia Bulldog. My main focus is just getting up there and doing what I can do to get on the field and help my teammates out.”
There are a lot of kids in this class I’m really looking forward to seeing what they can contribute this season, but Smith’s the one I’m most intrigued about, because of his fairly unique (for Georgia, anyway) skill set for the ILB position. He’s kinda this year’s Isaiah McKenzie in that regard. It doesn’t sound like there’s anything to worry about as to his mindset.
