Chubb likes competition

Cedartown running back Nick Chubb has traveled quite a bit in 2013.

The Rivals100 playmaker has visited Alabama, Auburn, Georgia, Georgia Tech, and Tennessee thus far, and still has other trips, including one to Ohio State, planned.

On Saturday, Chubb decided to make the trip to Athens for a return trip to UGA, and after visiting the campus for a number of times since the beginning of his junior year for games and the like, this experience was different.

"I got there around nine o'clock in the morning for practice but they (UGA) didn't practice because of the weather," Chubb said. "I got to see the coaches and talk to them. I got a chance to just hang with the coaches. It was good to get back. I've been there other times, for games and stuff, but didn't get to see film or talk about the offense much. This time I got to watch film and see how they run the ball. I got to spend time with most of the offensive staff, so it was great."

In his film session with the Georgia assistants, Chubb was pleased with what he saw in regards to the utilization of the Bulldog ball carriers.

"They (UGA) use their running backs very good.," he said. "They do the same thing we do here (at Cedartown). It's different but there are a lot of the same things."

This trip was also a chance for the four-star prospect to find out UGA's 2014 plans for the running back position.

Chubb discovered that Georgia plans to take more than one player at the position, but competition isn't something that will affect his decision.

As a matter of fact, he welcomes it.

"The (Georgia) coaches told me they want to take two (running backs) and the two they are going to take are going to play," Chubb said. "They told me that hopefully one will be me. I don't mind competition at all. It is only going to make you better. I know if I work hard it will work out one way or another and I will play."

Chubb named Georgia as his leader in an interview with UGASports recently, and after a number of trips to other campuses and another to UGA, little has changed.

"Georgia is still my top school," he said. "I have some schools that are up there, but Georgia is at the top right now. I will be going to Ohio State soon so we will see."

Visiting campuses and getting an in depth look at different schools is a high priority for Chubb, who also runs track at Cedartown, at this time, but so is improving his game.

"I'm just going to keep working at track. I'm running to keep my speed, and that is my top priority," he said. "We are also working out every day for football, and hopefully we will have a great season next year."
