UGA recruit says he’s ’90 percent committed’

Devonta Smith

AMITE CITY, La — Devonta Smith said when he committed to UGA both coach Mark Richt and wide receivers coach Bryan McClendon were stunned because they thought LSU was the team to beat. Needless to say, the coaching staff was excited to have Smith on board.

But it looks like the UGA coaches will have to work to keep him a member of the Bulldogs.

Smith, a 4-star wide receiver from Amite High School, told the AJC’s DawgNation.com that he is 90-percent committed.

“I haven’t been visiting other schools, really the only schools I have been to have been Ole Miss LSU and Alabama,” Smith said. “I really haven’t been going to places and seeing what they have.”

In the video above, Smith answers the following questions:

1) What would it take for him to de-commit from UGA? 2) Which schools is he planning on visiting soon? 3) What has been the most recent contact with UGA coaches? 4) What are his talents off of the field? 5) Smith says he’s working hard to get his teammate, Joshua Perry, an Alabama commit, to join him in Athens. What has he said about it?
