Imagine UGA defensive secondary with Branden Smith and Greg Reid

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?

Ried has completely droped UF now. He says Meyer treated him like crap during his official visit because he had pulled his commit and was looking around.

Meyer needs to watch his temper/EGO, other recruits are beginning to see how he treats people who “cross” him and how everything is about Urban and Urban only.

There is no doubt Meyer is a great coach and has put together a great team at Florida, but if he continues to alienate people with his attitude and ego, those two crystal trophies will only be worth so much once “superman” is gone.

Good kid need to commit so he can hit the books to get his grade in order.

[...] other options. Especially when he’s also your defensive backs coach and you’re in a heated battle for one of the top defensive backs in the country. I don’t get the sense that our recruiting [...]

Are you not man enough to show who you’re true team is? I do wish people on here would quit showing their ignorance.

Richt/Meyer have went head to head in recruiting and Richt has won his share. Even this year, both went after the #2 QB in the country who was within an hour from Gainesville, can anyone remind me what school he picked? Or any players from Daytona/St Augustine that has picked UGA over Fla lately?

And what will Kiffin do once he can’t ride on his daddy’s coat tail? Name one big time recruit in the top 50 that he has secured with his ‘recruiting gurus’ at Tn. So please post facts or just shut up and keep wishing Richt and UGA would go away.

UGA is not a program for the fairweather fans to just jump on a “bandwagon” when they win the SEC then turn on when they lose a couple of games. Ive been a DAWG since before i was born iam a legacy of tried and true DAWGS MEN since the time of my great great great grandfathers time so for me its really sad to hear people on here calling therselves DAWGS and then cut down one of the best coaches the program has ever had Ive actually had the privilege of talking with some of CMRs family and they are all the same extremely good people all around better than most youll ever be priveleged to meet. Guess what im saying is if you cant support the DAWGS wholeheartedly you may be an undercover tech fan:) GO DAWGS FOREVER!!!

UGA girl you are dead on. A lot of the whining and criticism is from people who are not UGA fans at all. The rest comes from exactly as you put it, “fair weather fans”. You also hear a fair amount from Tech fans who can’t get over the fact that Tech got lucky this year for the first time in 7 years. The true Tech came out when they embarrassed themselves in the Chicken Bowl. UGA can recruit with the best and play with the best. Hang in there UGA Girl.
