Georgia Recruit Nick Chubb Has Some Serious Hops

Tailback U is getting another specimen of an athlete this fall.  Incoming freshman Nick Chubb out of Cedartown High School was just gradually warming up for his track meet last week by doing some stretching and also had the chance to display his 40 inch vertical jump while loosing up his hammys.  And boy did he ever!  Holy shit this Chubb manchild makes Carl Lewis look like a JV athlete.

Before the comparisons already started somebody had the bright idea to put a side by side picture of current high school athlete Chubb next to the great Herschel Walker when he was in Athens.  You tell me who looks more like a super hero?

Chubb is a 5 star recruit who will make an immediate impact this fall despite returning starters Todd Gurley (the best college back in the nation) and Keith Marshall (coming off injury) otherwise known as Gurshall wrecking havoc again in the SEC.  If head coach Mark Richt and offensive coordinator Mike Bobo are smart enough they will realize they can ride the stable of Gurley, Marshall and Chubb to a SEC Title if they decide to RUN THE DAMN BALL and play to the strength of their offense while keeping their defense fresh and off the field.  The last time Georgia seriously contended for a National Championship they rode Herschel all the way to a Sugar Bowl triumph 34 years ago.  Why not do the same this year with 3 guys instead while keeping their legs fresh?
