Rest easy UGA IX. Fall will be here before you know it.

Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall Will not be Around Forever
Much to the dismay of Bulldog Nation, year two of Gurshall was cut short due to injury.  Still, Keith Marshall and Todd Gurley are two of the most talented tailbacks in college football. One can reasonably surmise that both members of the duo aspire to play professional football, which they both have the option to pursue following the 2014 season.

The purpose of this post is not to opine about whether Todd Gurley or Keith Marshall will leave the University of Georgia early.  Rather, we aim to spotlight the bright future being cultivated by the Georgia Bulldogs at the running back position.

Nick Chubb and Sony Michel are Ranked in the Top Ten
The 2014 G-Day Game has come and gone.  College football now shifts into summer, and the calm before the storm.  Bulldog Nation continues the process of welcoming this year’s recruiting class.

Rather than endeavoring to analyze the group as a whole we aim to serve Bulldog Nation by spotlighting two talented tailbacks.

According to ESPN, Sony Michel is currently the number-two running back prospect in the country, while Nick Chubb is rated as the eighth highest incoming tailback.  Both young men look forward to playing football at the University of Georgia.



Both Nick Chubb and Sony Michel are listed at 5’11” tall.  Chubb currently has a size advantage over Michel, outweighing him 216 to 205.

Nick Chubb Sets Lofty Goals
Chubb and Michel were teammates at the 2014 U.S. Army All-American Bowl in January, and the two are excited about playing college football between the hedges in Athens.  Nick Chubb told ESPN he is focused on making his name mean something to Bulldog Nation. “I’m going in behind guys like Herschel  Walker and Todd Gurley, two of the best running backs ever. I’m going to make a name for myself and do my best.”



Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall have proven to be uniquely talented tailbacks. Bulldog Nation should continue to marvel at their ability, but it is nice to know the future is in capable hands.
