#NSDFrenzy Top 25: Cedartown star headed to UGA


We are counting down to National Signing Day 2014 by putting the spotlight on 25 of Metro Atlanta’s top prospects as they choose their college destinations.

Schools around the country were upset when Cedartown running back Nick Chubb committed to Georgia on June 11. You see most schools wanted the 5-11, 218-pound super prospect, who led the state in rushing this year with 2,690 yards and 41 touchdowns, to sign with them. But he is about as solid as it gets to UGA.

Chubb is ranked among the top backs in the nation in the class of 2014. He combination of power, quickness and strength is something college coaches dream about. While his breakaway speed is not something scouts are raving about, neither was Todd Gurley’s at this stage of his career. Like Gurley and fellow rising junior Keith Marshall, Chubb is the perfect complement to fellow Bulldogs pledge Sony Michel, who is known as a “homerun threat” at tailback.

While many recruits waffle this time of year, it is good news for Georgia fans that Chubb seems to be solidly committed to Mark Richt.

“Next year, I’ll be playing at the University of Georgia,” said Chubb at his commitment ceremony in June. “Mostly, when I go to Georgia, I feel very comfortable,” he said.”I love the coaching staff and what they were telling me. They have very good running backs there where I can learn from them and compete for a spot. Hopefully I can learn some things and get better.”

While the Bulldogs gain a star in Chubb, Georgia high school football will watch one of its best running backs ever walk off into the college game next year.
