Georgia does not have a running back committed for the Class of 2013, despite having 27 commitments already. To rectify that, tailbacks coach Bryan McClendon was in Fulton, Miss., on Nov. 2 to check out ESPN 300 athlete Ashton Shumpert of Itawamba High School.

“I talked to Coach McClendon on Sunday,” Shumpert said. “He talked about how much he enjoyed the game and everything. He said he liked the way I played. He wants me to make it back to Georgia sometime soon.”

With offers from Alabama, Georgia, Ole Miss, Vanderbilt, Mississippi State and Oklahoma State, Shumpert is wanted for his ability to play a number of positions. The Bulldogs want him to run the ball.
