Here’s what he had to say to those who worry about the Bulldogs’ current recruiting class, which sits at No. 15. (via DawgNation)“People are sleeping on our class, but the guys we are bringing in are really talented. We know they can play. And the ones who join them will be elite, and they will be talking about this class on signing day and again three years from now as being truly special.”Sounds like he’s not going anywhere. Still the 247Sports Crystal Ball suggests Clemson and Florida State are still in play.Smith is the No. 2 overall recruit in 247Sports’ Composite, which takes ESPN and Rivals into account as well as its own.last_img read more
