Georgia Lands Top In-State Running Back

Georgia’s 2014 class received a big boost Tuesday night when running back Nick Chubb from Cedartown (Ga.) announced his commitment to the Bulldogs.

Chubb, who’s ranked the No. 1 running back in the state of Georgia by 247Sports, chose Georgia over Auburn and South Carolina.

“(Georgia is) where I feel most comfortable,” Chubb told the Atlanta Journal-Constitution. “I’ve been to Georgia more than anywhere. I really like it there.”

Chubb’s commitment is good news for Georgia, which before Tuesday had struggled to land a marquee in-state player. That raised questions about the Bulldogs’ recruiting in their home state after a disappointing haul in 2013 and a slow start to the 2014 class.

But now Georgia can point to Chubb, who joins running back commitment Sony Michel from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., in the Bulldogs’ class of 2014. That’s a nice haul at running back, writes Kipp Adams of ESPN RecruitingNation.

“The addition of Chubb gives the Bulldogs the top running back prospect from Florida and Georgia this year, an impressive accomplishment for any program and a badge of honor for running backs coach Bryan McClendon.”

Chubb is the eighth prospect to commit to Georgia’s 2014 class.

Recruit Elam ‘Done’ With Florida’s Joker Phillips

If Matt Elam signs with Florida, it probably won’t be thanks to the recruitment of wide receivers coach Joker Phillips.

Elam, a defensive tackle from John Hardin High School in Elizabethton, Ky., gave that hint on Sunday with a pair of tweets.

 

Elam told AL.com his top four schools are Alabama, Kentucky, Louisville and Ohio State. He had previously listed a top five list, which included Florida.

It should be noted the Gators haven’t offered a scholarship to Elam, who’s ranked the nation’s No. 24 defensive tackle by Rivals.com. The top four schools Elam is considering have all extended an offer.

Florida has received a commitment from one 2014 defensive tackle: Anthony Moten from St. Thomas Aquinas High School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla. The Gators have already offered more than 10 other defensive tackles in the 2014 class, which could lead Florida to be “done” with Elam following his public display of feelings toward Phillips.

Perhaps we should have taken a hint on Elam’s opinion of Phillips when they posed for a photo together on April 1.

Hogs RB Commit Cancels Announcement Ceremony

collins-arkansas-helmetOn Monday, five-star running back Alex Collins committed to Arkansas.  Today, he was supposed to announce his decision and sign his papers in his hometown of Fort Lauderdale, Florida.  But this afternoon, he’s canceled that ceremony in order to take more time to think about his future.

But this is where it gets even more interesting (horrible, if you’re a Razorback fan).  ESPNU reported that Collins’ mom actually “confiscated” her son’s letter of intent and left the school with it.  Reportedly, she wants Collins to say closer to home and attend Florida, Florida State or Miami.

You can bet a whole lot of fans — and coaches — are sweating this one from the Ozarks to the Keys.

“Dog eat your homework?”  “Nope, Mom stole my letter of intent.”

Florida WR Cunningham Picks Vandy Over Miami, FSU, And Stanford

mrsec-breaking-newsFour-star receiver Jordan Cunningham from Fort Lauderdale has announced he’ll be heading to Vanderbilt over Florida State, Miami and Stanford.  The 6-3 Cunningham is widely considered to be one of the 20 best receivers in the nation.

Kudos to James Franklin and his ability to sell Vandy as more than just a football program.  Cunningham announced that he’s working on “a 50-year plan” that includes playing receiver in college and then becoming a professional engineer and entrepreneur.  “Football’s going to end at some point and you have to have a backup plan,” Cunningham said.

While Cunningham seemed a little nervous during his presser, it’s clear the young man is very intelligent and has a great deal of perspective for his age.  Thumbs up to Cunningham and to Vanderbilt.

Eddie Jackson Commits To Alabama

Athlete Eddie Jackson from Boyd Anderson High School in Lauderdale Lakes, Fla., has committed to Alabama.

“I like how the program is run,” Jackson said, per ESPN RecruitingNation. “It’s just everything that they stand for. I can be that guy from Fort Lauderdale, the first guy to come up there and have a chance, a chance to go up there and play.”

Jackson could play on offense or defense at Alabama with the expectation being he’ll play on defense.

“They want me to play defensive back,” said Jackson, who also considered LSU.

Alabama is also in the running for defensive backs Vonn Bell from Chattanooga, Tenn., and Tony Conner from Batesville, Miss. But Bell has shown strong interest in Tennessee and Conner is seriously considering Ole Miss.

Jackson’s commitment gives Alabama 22 commitments for the class of 2013. Signing day is Feb. 6.
