The former 4-star wide receiver and trackstar out of Lakeland, Florida has struggled to stay healthy since signing with Georgia as a member of its 2020 recruiting class.
Smith played in four games as a true freshman due to surgery on a broken wrist and another on a torn meniscus. After multiple injuries during last offseason, Smith missed a number of games last year with a lower-leg contusion before eventually suffering a broken leg in practice that would end his season.
Per Evan Crowell of Dawgs Daily, Smith was having a successful fall camp prior to the injury:
Sources indicate that Smith is coming into his own this offseason, partly because of necessity. He’s routinely making the down field plays Georgia fans have become familiar with, but sources have indicated he’s becoming much more of a refined route runner as well.
When healthy enough to play, Smith has performed well, using his world-class speed to make big plays. He has five career receptions for 188 yards (37.6 yards per reception) and three touchdowns
