Former ESPN and Rivals reporter Radi Nabulsi created a stir on Twitter on Tuesday by posting some ridiculous photos of Nick Chubb.
Chubb is a 5-star prospect who was UGA’s star recruit for 2014 on the offensive side of the ball. You just didn’t hear about Chubb as much as Lorenzo Carter because Chubb committed to the Bulldogs early in the recruiting process and with little or no fanfare.
The surreal pictures of Chubb are from this past week’s state championship track meet. He was clocked at 10.79 seconds in the preliminaries of the Class AAAA 100-meter dash.
Who knows how Chubb will run with the ball in his hands with blockers in front of him next fall? But, to borrow a phrase from 247sports.com’s Rusty Mansell, Chubb looks like a “grown @$$ man” in high school.
Chubb stands 5-foot-11 and 229 pounds. Even though UGA has a Heisman candidate (Todd Gurley) and another junior almost surely to leave early for the NFL (Keith Marshall) at running back this season, look for Chubb to find a way to contribute at the position.
Now for the pics …
