Alabama CB Geno Smith arrested for DUI Saturday


The Crimson Tide nickleback was picked up in Tuscaloosa.

Alabama Crimson Tide sophomore cornerback Geno Smith was arrested for driving under the influence Saturday night in Tuscaloosa, according to a report by Cecil Hurt of

Smith was released Sunday on $1,000 bond.  There is no word on what disciplinary action will be taken against Smith, if any.

As a freshman, Smith made two starts and appeared in 13 games, recording nine tackles.  He was expected to start the season in the "Star" position in Nick Saban's nickle defense.  Saban lines up in Alabama's standard 3-4 only 20 percent of the time, preferring nickle and dime packages on most downs.  Smith, the established nickleback entering this season, is a de facto starter.

Smith was one of the most coveted defensive back recruits in the country, a consensus four-star prospect out of Atlanta's St. Pius X High.  He chose Alabama from an offer sheet that included twenty of the nation's top programs, including Florida, Florida State, and Georgia.
