Late addition: Georgia adds running back to 2016 recruiting class
Running back Brian Herrien went from an unknown recruit that may not make an FBS roster to one of Georgia’s late additions to the 2016 class.
The 6-foot, 205-pound tailback adds depth to a rather thin running back corps. Herrien will back up both Nick Chubb and Sony Michel, but to him this is all a dream come true.
“It feels so good – I have been waiting on this moment for a long time,” Herrien told 247Sports. “I just want to be as good as Chubb and Todd Gurley , or even better.”
Those are high aspirations, but Herrien is confident. “I can make an impact,” the new RB arrival stated. He has signed a financial aid agreement with the Bulldogs.
Although somewhat thin, Georgia’s running back position is as talented as any backfield in the country, and adding Herrien won’t turn many heads, but he adds some crucial depth to the position.
The Douglasville, Georgia, native is rated as a three-star running back, according to 247Sports Composite Rankings, and he’s rated as the No. 19 overall running back and the state of Georgia’s No. 35 overall player.
Here are Herrien’s senior highlights:
