ATHENS - The “Great Wall of Georgia” added another brick today as Kirby Smart and offensive line coach Stacy Searels add a commitment from one of the top in-state offensive line prospects in four-star Kelton Smith‍.

The Carver Columbus (GA) standout took his official visit to Georgia the weekend of June 10th and that’s all he needed to see. Sources say the 6-foot-5 300-pounder has been leaning towards Georgia for some time now, and now the Columbus native is on the commit list.

In the end, Smith chose the Bulldogs over Florida State and LSU.

What are the Bulldogs getting in Smith?

Size and versatility.

Smith is a big, strong lineman who has the chance to play wither guard or tackle in Athens. Playing left tackle for the Tigers last year, Smith dominated in the run game and opened up massive holes to run through all season. He has plenty of length and gets to the defender quickly off the ball in the run game. He does a good job of driving defenders backwards and loves to finish blocks in style.

He’s still developing as a pass-protector, so he’ll likely move inside once he gets to Georgia. He looks the part physically, and even at 300-pounds, he has the frame to continue adding more mass and muscle. He plays hard, and he still has plenty of room to improve in all aspects, which is a good thing for Georgia fans.

His best football is still ahead of him, and while he won’t be asked to play early, he has a chance to become a really nice player if he develops properly over time. He certainly has the potential to crack the starting rotation at some point if he continues to improve under assistant Stacy Searels.

Smith becomes Georgia’s 3rd offensive line commitment in the 2023 class, joining four-star tackle Bo Hughley‍ and three-star guard Joshua Miller‍.
