Kirby Smart Issues Statement Following Roquan Smith Announcement

On Monday, Georgia linebacker Roquan Smith announced he will forego his senior season and enter the NFL Draft.

Kirby Smart has coached a ton of great linebackers throughout his career at Alabama, but maybe none better than Roquan Smith, who Smart was able to coach for the past two seasons in Athens.

Following Smith’s announcement, the head coach issued this statement.

“Words cannot describe how much Roquan has meant to our program.  The accolades he has received are a testimony to his ability as a player.  But he has also demonstrated on and off the field the qualities of a great leader who has commanded the respect of all his teammates as well as our coaching and support staffs.  As the head coach, it’s been a privilege to see him develop as a student-athlete and inspirational leader who has made immeasurable contributions to our team and to the program we are building.  While we will miss him, we wish him all the best and know that great success awaits him at the next level.”
