With DeAndre McDaniels, Byron Maxwell, and Marcus Gilchrest graduating, Clemson is going to need to stock up on new playmakers in the secondary. 2012 recruit Geno Smith is exactly that, Geno just finished up an impressive junior season.
“We went 9-3. I ended up with 47 tackles, 8 interceptions and 14 pass break ups,” said Smith.
The 6 foot, 170 lbs burner (4.41 in the 40) has drawn interest from a lot of schools, and has been offered a scholarship by Clemson and many others.
“I have 14 scholarships to this point,” said Smith.
What schools will the standout cornerback look at?
“I’m looking at a lot of different schools in the SEC and ACC. At this point I have no favorites. But I will be looking at Clemson, I like the tradition there. I plan on visiting a bunch of different schools this offseason, probably go to some junior days and take some unofficial visits,” said Smith.
The playmaker from Atlanta said he has yet to visit Clemson but looks forward to taking a visit.
What are the most important things when looking at schools?
“Relation with the coaches, academics, early playing time, and the environment,” replied Smith.
