Bruin RB targets

Running back, at least at this time in the process is not a high priority for a class after landing two outstanding ones and even maybe a third last February when Jordon James, Malcolm Jones and Anthony Barr signed along the dotted line. At this point the Bruins have two known offers out at the running back position. They are listed in alphabetical order.

George Atkinson III (6-2.5, 195, 4.4) Livermore (Calif.) Granada

Skinny: Though Atkinson is considered a running back, he has the versatility to play wide receiver or defensive back. You get a lot of bang for your buck with Atkinson. He has been compared to Eric Dickerson in his running style. Atkinson is the complete football player who has size, speed, toughness and an outstanding work ethic. On the recruiting trail Atkinson is open and is planning on taking an unofficial to UCLA sometime during the spring or summer.
