I’ll say it again: one thing I love about Smart’s new approach at Georgia is how aggressive he is about beefing up the walk-on program.
Smart is targeting the best available players in the state not only to bring on board on scholarship but to get the best ones remaining as walk-ons.
“I’ve always thought Georgia should have the best walk-on program in the country,” he said. “Why not? You’ve got the HOPE (scholarship). You’ve got great high school football. Every kid in the state dreams of coming to Georgia. So why shouldn’t you have the best walk-on program in the country? Because a lot of those kids develop to be special teams players, to be starters.”
Can’t argue with that one bit.
