Chubb gets the tour

Cedartown running back Nick Chubb had no plans for Saturday.

The North Georgia standout who rushed for over 2,700 yards thought he would be sitting at home and taking it easy, but then he received a call.

On the other end of the line was Georgia offensive coordinator Mike Bobo, and the UGA assistant convinced Chubb to make the trip over to Athens.

But Chubb isn't complaining.

"Coach Bobo called unexpectedly and he just said that I really needed to go down to Georgia to check the building out more and see who was down there," Chubb said of how the visit came about. "I'm glad I went because I really liked it."

Bobo hosted the four-star running back on his visit to the Classic City, but Chubb also got to spend time with other coaches and see some new things.

"I spent most of my time with Coach Bobo, but on the tour of Butts-Mehre, Will Friend and Bryan McClendon came," he said. "I got to see stuff that I hadn't seen before like the trophy rooms and the meeting rooms and the theater room and all of that stuff."

Georgia offered the Rivals250 prospect last month, and before the visit to Athens, he felt the staff was starting to make him a priority in the 2014 class.

says that the visit confirmed that notion.

"Well they said that it doesn't matter how many running backs they get, they still want me. I feel good about that," said Chubb. "We didn't get to that part about how they want to use me, but I'm sure we will get to that in the future. Coach Bobo did show me the depth chart at running back and they're not very heavy there."

Visiting UGA is not new to Chubb as he took in multiple games last fall in Sanford Stadium, and after spending so much time in Athens over the last year; he feels that he can now name a leader in his recruitment.

"I think I've been to Georgia more than I've been anywhere, my overall impression is that I really like them and they are at the top of the list right now," he said. "They are my leader. I feel comfortable there. I'm a Bulldog right now and they are too. It is in the state and it's not that far from home. I like them."

While the home state Bulldogs occupy the top spot on Chubb's list, schools like Florida, Alabama, Ohio State, and Tennessee are also making a strong push.

At this point, he only has one visit planned for sure, but the Peach State playmaker says that he will visit all of the schools in consideration before making a decision.

"I'm going to Ohio State on Feb. 10, and the next weekend I might go to Tennessee or Georgia," he said. "I don't know yet. I'm still going to visit all schools. I'm still going to take a all my visits. I've never seen Tennessee or Ohio State yet. Things could change."
