Kirby Smart Gives A Very Honest Answer On Recruiting And The Sacrifices It Takes

If you were wondering how Kirby Smart feels about recruiting on a national level, he definitely took the time to give you a candid answer, after beating up on Florida. In the midst of a dominating season, especially on the defensive side of the ball, Smart filled folks in on what it takes to be competitive at this level.

We've all witnessed what the Dawgs can do on the recruiting trail, but it was also about putting that together on the field. This season, the fruits of their labor have been on full display, as they've only given up five touchdowns this season. They are also benefiting from a fantastic group of running backs, especially today, without Kendall Milton.

The biggest thing Georgia must do now is capitalize on the talent and the way this team continues to play. The Dawgs have all the makings of a national championship-winning team, but as we've seen in the past, anything can happen, especially with Georgia.

Kirby Smart stuck with Stetson Bennett today against Florida and complimented the mobility of the quarterback.

"He does a really good job on some plays, and then you are holding your breath when he holds the ball. He has to make good decisions down the field. We can’t give the ball away. When it is not there – we are pretty good on the next down, so let’s play for the next down and not worry about that play. Making good decisions can be helpful with that. His legs and mobility were a big part of the game plan and he made two really good plays with his feet.”

It seems as if this staff is going to roll with Bennett, as he continues to execute in many different ways. But, if they do need to switch things up, they'll have JT Daniels waiting.

By the way, this is also another positive of the recruiting of Kirby, as they have a 5-star quarterback sitting on the bench, who could easily lead them to a title as well.
