TUSCALOOSA, Ala. -- Things had been going almost too smoothly for coach Nick Saban and the defending champion Crimson Tide this summer. But then the end of fall camp came on Saturday afternoon and the arrest of sophomore cornerback Geno Smith for driving under the influence showed up shortly thereafter.
Smith, a potential starter for Alabama at nickel back this season, was held for $1,000 bond by the Tuscaloosa County Sheriff's Office.
The former four-star prospect out of Georgia played in 13 games last year, racking up nine tackles and two pass break-ups. With his status now in question, fellow sophomores Cyrus Jones and Bradley Sylve could become the top two cornerbacks off the bench for the Tide.
