BREAKING: Georgia lands 4-star wideout Chandler Smith
Georgia added its 26th commitment on Tuesday morning as four-star wide receiver Chandler Smith gave his verbal pledge.
The 6-foot-1, 180-pound wideout de-committed from Florida earlier this month. Per Smith’s 247Sports profile, he traveled to Athens this past weekend for an official visit.
He posted a picture in a tweet with Georgia wide receivers coach Cortez Hankton on Dec. 9, which was a day before his reported visit. The position coach was an in-home visit when the photo was posted.
Smith is the nation’s No. 224-rated prospect, No. 34 wide receiver, and the No. 26 overall player in the state of Florida, according to the 247Sports Composite.
He’s a dual-sport athlete that runs a 10.28-second 100-meter dash and 21.40-second 200-meter dash, respectively. Smith won state titles in both races as a junior at the Florida Class 2A state meet, per his MaxPreps account.
Scouting Report: A true speedster. Has broken 10.3 in the 100-meter and 21.0 in the 200-meter dash making him one of the fastest prospects in the class of 2022. No verified measurements on record, but looks to have some length to him and is believed to be a shade over 6-foot-1. Tracks the ball well over his shoulder. Will also attack it on short little slant routes. Can obviously take the top off a defense with his foot speed and is the type of wide receiver that safeties are always going to have to account for before the snap. Flashed in pads as a junior and then again as a senior, but durability issues are a major concern as he has missed plenty of time due to a variety of injuries including one to his knee. Should be viewed as a developmental type of prospect that could eventually turn into a weapon at the Power 5 level if everything comes together. Must, however, continue to improve as a football player and learn how to consistently create separation against FBS cornerbacks. Ability to get deep in the snap of a finger will likely draw the eyes of NFL scouts one day. - Andrew Ivins, 247Sports
