07:26 AM ET 10.10 | If this season has shown anything in Athens, it's that a team can't have too many running backs. The top two for the Bulldogs, Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall, have been sidelined with injuries. Next season, UGA will add another elite running back with Nick Chubb, the 5-star from Cedartown High School. How good is Chubb? He could make a late push to be the nation's No. 1 running back. Chubb, like last season, is putting up silly numbers as a high school senior. While some question his strength of schedule, Chubb proved in last December's junior all-star game that he could dominate against the best. Over the summer, he tested out as the third-best athlete at the star-studded SPARQ athletic skills competition at Nike headquarters. What else does he need to prove? I'm not sure.

Chubb: another colorful name in the UGA backfield. Bet he can do the Twist, too.

And that he doesn't put the ball on the ground every third carry.

They could use him right now with all the injuries.

Just as long as he can't play this week, I hope he has a great career. I picked Missouri.

Lots a kids put up out of this world numbers in High School......Problem with that is it just High School, kids are alot smaller and the real gifted players are far and few between, in college every team's got gifted players on both sides of the ball.
