Early Look: 2010 Running Backs

UGA signed the best in their home state in 2009 and they will look there again in 2010. They've offered one in Georgia and three outside the Peach State. Get a look at the 2010 backs on UGA's radar here.

The first back to get an offer from Georgia may be the top junior in the country.

Marcus Lattimore has been around UGA a lot over the past couple of years and he is high on UGA's list like he is many schools across the country.

Lattimore is a work-horse and he is one of the premier prospects in America. He is a strong back, he is a good blocker, he has receiver like hands out of the backfield, he gets better as the game goes on, and he has uncanny vision where he sees things many don't. If he lacks anything, it is that second gear, but he has everything else.


Mack Brown
The 6-foot-1, 215 pound junior out of South Carolina has over 20 offers at this time and he is a National recruit. Some feel South Carolina is the school to beat, but Lattimore says he is open to all.

Clemson, Florida State, North Carolina, Alabama, and many others will fight Georgia for this one, but the Dawgs have made it clear that Lattimore is a top target of theirs in 2010.

The top back in Georgia is Mack Brown and they have extended an early offer to him.

Brown became the first back that new RB Coach Bryan McClendon offered and that offer took place in late January. On that same day, Florida offered and Alabama, Auburn, and Tennessee have offered since.

The 5-foot-11, 185 pound back out of M.L.K. in Lithonia is a special back and he will be one of the best at his position when all is said and done.

Brown is explosive, he can catch the ball well out of the backfield, he has great balance, and he can run inside or outside. He has ideal size, speed, and vision, so expect to hear a lot about him in the coming months.

Florida is on top early, but Georgia is right behind them and he will be visiting Athens this week. He does not plan to make an early decision.

The latest two backs to get an offers from the Dawgs are Corey Brown and Eduardo Clements.

Brown is out of Cardinal O'Hara High School in Springfield (PA). He played with Rutgers signee Tom Savage in 2008 before getting injured.

He only played in three games last fall because of a torn MCL, but he still ran for about 600 yards and picked off two passes at corner.

Over 20 schools have offered him and he lists Ohio State, Rutgers, Florida, Georgia, Pittsburgh, Maryland, and Penn State as an early top seven.


Eduardo Clements

Brown is a explosive athlete that could play running back, corner, or slot receiver on the next level. He is being primarily recruited at a running back.

Clements is a 5-foot-11, 180 pound back with great quickness and patience. He knows how to find his hole, hit it with good speed, and make big plays.

An offer from UGA just arrived last week and he will take a look at the Dawgs. FSU took an early lead, but he has backed off that now and says he is open.

The Scout100 four-star back out of Booker T. Washington in Miami (FL) is elite. He has 15 offers at this time and he has offers in from schools coast to coast.

These four are the four that Georgia has offered, but they are involved with many other junior running backs.

In Georgia, Storm Johnson and Juwan Thompson are two to watch and keep an eye on Mustafa Green, and a few others from outside the Peach State.

If the right two want to be Dawgs, then look for UGA to sign two backs, but one is a definite need. If any combination of Brown, Lattimore, Brown, and Clements wanted to be Bulldogs, then UGA would not turn any one of them down.
