Nick Chubb Ponders Future

ATHENS - Understandably, Nick Chubb isn’t sure if he will be back at UGA next year.

He’s also not certain when he will know that. 

“Ever since I was a young kid I always thought about playing in the NFL,” Chubb told reporters Wednesday night - indicating that he doesn’t know if the game against Georgia Tech in ten days will be his final home game. 

“That’s a long ways away. I just taking it day by day,” he said. 

Considered one of the top running backs in the country, Chubb said he understands that his future in the NFL is an unknown because of the position he plays. His injury last season compounds doubt about his future at such a physical position. 

“Running backs really don’t last a long time in the NFL. Everyone knows that,” Chubb said. 

Chubb said he would think about the decision to leave sometime after UGA completes its bowl game in December or January. The deadline to declare for the NFL Draft is Monday, January 16th. 

Chubb added that he doesn’t necessarily feel the pressure to leave UGA early for money. 

“A lot of guys leave (their senior season) for family reasons, but I don’t think I have those kind of family reasons,” he said.
