The site updated its rankings for the class of 2019, and unveiled a new No. 1 player: five-star defensive end Nolan Smith.Smith, who plays for IMG Academty in Florida, dethroned another defensive end, fellow five-star Zach Harrison, as the nation’s top recruit. Don’t feel too bad for Harrison, though, he still sits at No. 2.The top recruit stands 6-foot-3 and weighs in at 230 pounds.Smith is a longtime Georgia commit. The high school star committed to Georgia in January 2017 and it looks like he’s not changing his mind anytime soon.Smith is talking about Goergia’s 2019 recruiting class like he’s already a member of the team. 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

There are now almost 12,000 UN Police from 98 countries deployed in 18 UN peace operations.
