There’s fast. And there’s Arian Smith.

NCAA Football: SEC Championship-Alabama vs Georgia Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

If you follow Georgia Bulldog recruiting you probably already knew that UGA signee Arian Smith is a receiver with good size and great speed. It’s one thing to read about Smith’s jets. It’s another thing to see it in action.

One of the traditional features at the annual Under Armour All-American game is a race to determine the fastest player at the event. It’s kind of a spectacle.

Enter Arian Smith.

Exit Arian Smith.

It should be noted that Chris Tyree, the Notre Dame tailback commit Arian is literally looking back at while blowing by him to win, isn’t exactly a stiff. Tyree ran a laser timed 4.38 forty at The Opening this summer.

Arian Smith isn’t just fast. When he steps on campus in Athens this summer he’ll immediately become a serious contender for the title of fastest player on the team. That doesn’t mean he’ll automatically turn around the Dawgs’ flagging passing attack all by himself. But having a 6’1 receiver capable of taking a slant route and turning upfield like (gestures back up toward the video)....that, certainly doesn’t hurt. Until later...

Go ‘Dawgs!!!
