For those of you wondering where Georgia’s newest defensive back might fit in, Seth Emerson spoke with a few Alabama beat writers about what Maurice Smith brings to the table. I thought this part was of the most interest:
“… Forget about him missing the first week-and-a-half of fall camp. Smith is a smart kid and his experience and comfortability should make for an easy adaptation should he end up in Athens.
“Smith would have played much more last year had he not dealt with injuries. When he was sidelined, Smith lost his role in the defense to true freshman Ronnie Harrison. He couldn’t supplant Harrison after that. That decision was made by Mel Tucker and Smart, so that’s something to watch if he does indeed end up at Georgia.”
You’ve got a smart kid who knows the scheme at least as well as anyone else on Georgia’s roster. That adds up to contributing this season to me.
