Manson one of only two RBs Georgia has offered

With limited scholarships, it appears that Georgia has set its sights on only two running backs this fall. One is Tucker running back Thomas Brown, who committed to Georgia on Sunday, and Alabama product Markus Manson. See how Manson feels about recruiting and where Georgia stacks up with the rest of the other schools offering.

Georgia has only offered two running backs so far. Both Thomas Brown and Markus Manson are the fortunate ones that the Dawgs have extended scholarship offers to. But while some speculation is that Brown could be moved to corner in college, it appears certain that Manson will play running back at the next level.

Manson is a pretty good running back, that can be seen by the amount of offers that he has as well as the quality of the schools interested:

"Auburn, Georgia, Michigan State, Alabama, Oregon State, Colorado, Arkansas, LSU, South Carolina, Clemson, Vanderbilt, and Michigan have all offered me," Manson said.

With nearly every school in the south and several other schools vying for his services, Manson says that it is too difficult to narrow his choices down right now.

"I won't narrow my list down until after the season," he said. "Right now I am interested in everyone that is interested in me."

But Manson did admit to a few things while I spoke with him on the phone. He told me which schools have a slight advantage already and if he will visit Athens this fall.

"The Alabama (both Bama and Auburn) schools do have some advantage because I am already here," he said. "I have not visited Georgia, but I will take an official visit this fall," Manson said.

Manson said that he likes to study football to get better. "I like to watch film," he said. Manson also added that he loved to practice.

And while Manson is only one of two that has an offer from Georgia right now at running back, he says that he hopes that he gets the chance to tote the rock on the next level.

"I hope to play tailback at the next level. Everyone is telling me that I will play running back and that's what I want to do," Manson said.
