Let’s keep it real: The state of Georgia has a national reputation for producing running backs.
This year’s class out of Georgia doesn’t really have any traditional backs like most years. The biggest name is probably 5-star Taj Griffin of McEachern, but many scouts like him more at slot and wonder about his long-term durability. Sandy Creek’s Eric Swinney is nice, but also a little under-sized.
One name to watch is Mill Creek High School’s Jonathan Hawkins. His recruiting is picking up with recent offers from Auburn, Arkansas, Penn State and FSU, among others.
The 5-foot-11, 210-pounder said he would like to get looks from UGA and South Carolina, among others
