Chubb gives UGA another talented RB duo

The University of Georgia got some big news Tuesday, as four-star running back Nick Chubb (Cedartown, Ga./Cedartown) committed to the Bulldogs over Auburn and South Carolina. After missing out on top in-state tailback targets Alvin Kamara and Tyren Jones in the 2013 recruiting cycle, Mark Richt and his staff have successfully reeled in their top two targets at the position in the 2014 class. This fills a huge need for the Bulldogs with almost eight months until signing day.
With Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall both set to be draft-eligible juniors in 2014, Georgia will need to start preparing other running backs to possibly take over in 2015. Former ESPN 300 prospect A.J. Turman is a promising addition, as is Brendan Douglas, but both are incoming freshmen and are unproven at this point. Regardless of their contributions, Georgia knew it needed to find some more backfield talent for this class.
