Alabama DB commit Geno Smith is planning an unofficial visit to archrival Auburn but it’s not why you think.
Yes, Auburn was the runner-up to Alabama for the AJC Super 11 DB’s commitment but his trip to Auburn would be to go see Alabama play. This year’s Iron Bowl will be played at Auburn on Nov. 26.
“Other than the Iron Bowl, I don’t plan on visiting any other schools than Alabama,” said Smith, who still hears from Auburn, UGA, LSU, Arkansas and Florida State on a regular basis.
Smith has kept an extremely low profile since committing, focusing on his senior season at St. Pius, which is 7-0 and ranked No. 2 in Georgia’s Class AAA. Smith stars on both sides of the ball for St. Pius, also playing tailback.
Smith has flourished under the incredibly high expectations that were put on him for his senior season. “I know the expectations are high, but I don’t really think about it that much because I’m confident about what I can do. So far, so great for our team this year. We have a big game on Friday against Grady.”
What about Alabama? Smith will make his first visit there this fall for Saturday’s Tennessee game, and will likely return for the LSU and Georgia Southern games also. He will take his official visit to Alabama sometime in January.
