PROFILE 2003: Kregg Lumpkin (RB)

Kregg Lumpkin is 6-foot-1 and 190 pounds. He runs a 4.4 forty and is one of the most explosive running backs in the nation. Lumpkin had a terrific junior campaign, rushing for over 2,000 yards, including 13 consecutive 100 yard+ rushing performances.

Last season, running back Kregg Lumpkin had 13 consecutive 100-yard rushing games. The senior-to-be from Stephenson High School in Stone Mountain, Ga., established himself as one of the top backs in the Class of 2003. 

"In my opinion, Kregg Lumpkin is the best all-around running back in the country," said Stephenson head coach Ron Gartrell. "He has the ability, speed, strength and the mental approach to be an exceptional player. Plus, Kregg is a great kid." 

The bottom line is that he is an explosive running back with potentially great size that the college coaches covet. 

"I think I am a balanced runner," said Lumpkin. "I have power, elusiveness and speed.  I can see the holes and I try to and explode through them. I can run wide or between the tackles. I like it all." 

Lumpkin says he is open between Georgia, LSU, Miami, Florida, Michigan and Auburn. Location will be important to him. 

"I want to play close to home," said Lumpkin."I have to be near my mom and dad because we are a close family." 

Last weekend, Lumpkin went to Athens to watch a UGA spring practice.  Last summer, he camped at Auburn. Those are the only two schools he has seen unofficially thus far.
