UGA fans get excited about the possibility of a defensive secondary featuring Branden Smith and Greg Reid.
Smith likes the idea, too.
“I don’t know Greg very well, but his performance (two interceptions) in the all-star game speaks for itself,” Smith said. “All he does is make plays.”
“I’d love for Greg to come to Georgia with me. It would great to have two Georgia boys back there locking down wide receivers and helping the Bulldogs win championships.”
Smith, from Atlanta’s Booker T. Washington High, is the state’s top prospect and has committed to Georgia.
Reid played at Lowndes and is arguably the state’s hottest prospect after winning MVP honors at the Under Armour All-America game. Reid backed off his longtime commitment to Florida and is now considering the Gators, Georgia, Florida State and Alabama.
Smith denied rumors that he would consider other schools if Reid, who plays the same position, committed to Georgia. “Not true, at all. When I picked Georgia, I picked the school that was best for me, [regardless] of what other prospects do. And I would love it if Greg Reid came to Georgia, too. I think he’s a guy who is really going to be able to help a team out. I’d love for it to be Georgia with me. I want all the best players to sign with Georgia so we can have the best team possible.”
But will Reid sign with the Bulldogs? Or is it wishful thinking?
