Crimson Countdown: Geno Smith

During the summer, TideNation will analyze each of the scholarship players on the Alabama roster -- excluding the Tide's 2013 recruiting class -- in our Crimson Countdown series. Starting with No. 1 Dee Hart, we will go through the roster numerically, finishing with No. 99 Brandon Ivory.

No. 24 Geno Smith

Sophomore cornerback

Expectations for 2013: After a freshman campaign in which he came along at just the right time, starting the two biggest games of the regular season against Texas A&M and Georgia, Smith is expected to do even more for the Crimson Tide in 2013.
