Garrison Smith is a five-star prospect on Scout.com.
He plays for Coach Ken Barrow at Douglass High School.
He is the leader for the Astros.
As a junior Smith registered 108 tackles, 27 tackles for loss and 14 sacks.
His dominant junior year combined with his size, speed, and athleticism made him a priority for many schools across the country.
He quickly became one of the hottest recruits in the country early in 2009.
Schools from coast to coast wanted to get Smith on their campus.
The premier DL took a visit to Georgia late in January and he fell in love with the Dawgs.
Offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida, Florida State, LSU, Miami, Ohio State, Notre Dame, Southern Cal, and others came in over the next six weeks.
He took a number of visits and thought about many different schools before making his decision in July.
Smith chose Georgia over 50 other scholarship offers.
The Bulldogs landed one of the top recruits in the country.
In the end Smith chose Georgia over Florida.
He will play defensive tackle for Rodney Garner at UGA.
The rip move is one of his favorite moves when firing off the ball.
Smith likes to get back into the backfield and dish out pain to his opponents.
He will take a lot of quickness, strength, and potential with him to Athens.
At 6-foot-3, 255 pounds, he will need to add a little weight before being ready to contribute.
Smith has a great frame for Georgia to work with and he will likely play at around 6-3/295 down the road.
The Atlanta native is very excited to be a Bulldog!
He walks around school and the community and everyone knows where he is going after he leaves Douglass...
The University of Georgia.
