RB Emerges From Georgia

With the loss of Travis Zachary next season, it will be imperative for the Tigers to bolster the talent behind Bernard Rambert and Keith Kelly. With that said, we've got the latest on a rising star at the running back position from the state of Georgia.

A running back emerging from the state of Georgia is Kelvin German. German, from Tyrone (Ga.) Sandy Creek High School, is off to a great start, rushing for over 700 yards and 8 touchdowns. Last season, he backed up J.R. Lemon (Stanford). "J.R. pushed me a lot," said German. "He was a guy that I looked up to both on and off the field. JR taught me a lot, especially on how to handle myself."

German is a different type back than Lemon. Lemon is bigger, stronger and runs harder. German is 5-11 and 190 pounds (4.45 forty).

"I am elusive and I have more speed than power. But I have a little power and will use if the situation calls for it."

According to German, both Georgia and Georgia Tech have offered him a scholarship. "Georgia and Clemson are my favorite schools. I also like Northwestern. Georgia, Georgia Tech, Northwestern, Syracuse, NC State and Middle Tennessee State are the schools recruiting me the hardest."

German camped at both Georgia and Georgia Tech this past summer.
