Geno Smith closing in on a decision 

July, 1, 2011
Decision time is drawing near for four-star CB Geno Smith (Atlanta/St. Pius X Catholic).

Smith, who is No. 31 in the ESPNU 150 and the No. 2 CB in the country, said he plans to announce his decision in August and will choose from Notre Dame, Texas, Alabama, Auburn and Tennessee.

The clock is clearly ticking on the Fighting Irish. Smith, 5-foot-11 and 170 pounds, said he likes the school's tradition but hasn't yet visited South Bend. He said he hopes to do so before announcing his decision. If he's not able to make the trip, that would clearly give the other four schools he's considering a distinct advantage.
