Georgia football playing the long game with versatile defensive back Smoke Bouie

ATHENS — It has been hard to get a read on Smoke Bouie this spring for Georgia. That’s by design for the Bulldogs, as his versatility is a big reason he is now in Athens.

Most thought Bouie would come in and push for playing time at either safety or star. And to be sure he still might. But to this point, he’s worked at the cornerback position as well.

He’s made a quick impression on teammates this spring, noting his ability to move around the Georgia’s secondary. He’s also still a young player, as he’s entering his second collegiate season.

“Very, very handsy player. I love watching him play. He gets hands on receivers, very physical at the point of attack,” defensive back Javon Bullard said.” Very quick and agile. He moves well. I think he’s going to make a great fit for our team.”

Georgia has known about Bouie for quite some time. He first began camping at Georgia in the ninth grade and was at one point at Georgia commit in the 2022 recruiting class.
