SEC Football News on Saturday Down South

Florida, Georgia in top four with coveted cornerback

NEW: Follow on facebook -

Coming next week starting Feb. 24–Quarterback Week! We take a look at the top 2015 signal caller targets for SEC schools, talk to them about what’s on their minds … and where they might end up.

Maurice Smitherman is a cornerback from Alabama with a lot of options.

This week, the 5-foot-11, 180-pound Adamsville native let it be known via Twitter that Florida and Georgia were two of his top four teams. Florida State and Clemson were the other two. Smitherman also reports SEC scholarship offers from Arkansas, Georgia, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, Kentucky, LSU, Mizzou, Tennessee and Texas A&M. Alabama and Auburn have not offered though.

Smitherman is a three-star prospect on the cusp of four-star status with several services. Don’t be surprised if that bump up is made soon.
