Nick Chubb, the best running back in the state of Georgia, decided to remain in-state and play his college football with Mark Richt's Bulldogs.
The 5-11, 216-pound Class of 2014 product from Cedartown High School (Cedartown, GA) announced Tuesday evening that he chose the 'Dawgs over South Carolina and Auburn.
Chubb, who is the No. 9 running back nationally by Rivals.com, joins Florida running back Sony Michel as top 2014 pledges for the Bulldogs. Of course, Richt and Co. already have star tailbacks Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall in Athens, but they will be juniors in 2014 and eligible to enter the NFL Draft after that season. So depth was needed at the position.
In 2012 Chubb rushed for 2,721 yards and 38 touchdowns in 10 games. He has a unique blend of strength and speed, and he also has good vision. He is very good between the tackles but has the ability to bounce outside as well.
Chubb is the eighth commitment in Georgia’s 2014 class and the third since Saturday.
