Georgia caused a sensation on the transfer portal during the 2021
Smith entered the transfer portal about a week ago. Due to the connection between the rising junior guard and one of his assistant coaches Jahmile Addae for the past two seasons, the Bulldogs were immediately recognized as a potential suitor. Kirby Smart hired Addae as a defensive backing for Georgia in January after spending the past two years with mountaineers.
Smith is 5 feet 11 195 pounds and will hold a nickel (SPEAR) position at WVU in 2020. This is similar to the STAR position adopted by UGA in its nickel package. Since the opposing team, most of the Bulldogs’ personnel groups used for assaults have often appeared in three receivers.
He played 22 games in the first two seasons in Morgantown. In 12 games as a freshman, he scored a total of 51 tackles, lost 2.5 tackles, a sack and two interceptions. He returned one of the interceptions 19 yards away for a touchdown and forced one of them to fail.
In 10 games in his sophomore year, Smith lost 61 tackles and 8 tackles while breaking 5 passes and intercepting 2 at the same time. He helped the Climbers rank No. 1 in passing defense in the U.S. in average yards per game, as well as defensive passes with an average of 10 passes per pass attempt.
When the season ended, Smith was named the third team in the United States by the Associated Press. He is a member of the All Big 12 Honor Nomination team. He received the national honors as a freshman in 2019.
By 2021, Bulldogs will replace most of their secondary schools. After Tyson Campbell, DJ Daniel and Eric Stokes all entered the 2021 NFL Draft, their corners started to zero. UGA also lost the top two STAR/Nickel defenders when Mark Webb entered the NFL draft and Tyrique Stevenson was elected to move to Miami. The two players are Latavious Brini in 2020 and William Poole in 2018, each with a game starting experience in the STAR/Nickel position.
The addition of Smith enabled the Bulldogs to win 83 scholarship recipients in the 2021 season. The NCAA limit is 85. Between now and the beginning of the season, the Bulldogs have the ability to add up to two players from the transfer portal. They have surplus demand on the corners and wide receivers. Many people in these two positions think that once the spring training is over, they will be the target.
