Georgia RB Zamir White announces his plans for the 2021 season
Georgia’s running back position got a jolt of experience entering the 2021 season as veteran RB Zamir White has announced he would return for another season.
“Let’s run it back!!#UnfinishedBusiness,” he tweeted.
The redshirt sophomore from Laurinberg, North Carolina was the starter at tailback in each of the Bulldogs’ 10 games, and finished as the team’s leading rusher with 779 yards on 144 carries (5.4 avg.) and 11 TDs. He had three 100-yard rushing games during the season, including back-to-back against Kentucky and Florida.
White has bounced back from a knee injury suffered before the 2018 season.
In 2019, White played in 13 of 14 games, and finished season with 408 yards on 78 carries, which was third-best on the team, including a career-high 92 yards on 18 carries in first start against Baylor in the Sugar Bowl.
Before this past season’s Peach Bowl win over Cincinnati, White spoke about how his Georgia teammates and coaches helped him overcome such a difficult start to his college career.
“I’ll say just going with my teammates makes it a lot better for me, just being there for me, just working hard with them guys,” White said, per Dawg Nation. “My coaching staff. My family been there for me.”
Georgia will have a full backfield in 2021, after James Cook announced his return last week. White and Cook will join returnees Kenny McIntosh, Kendall Milton and Daijun Edwards, along with incoming recruit Lovasea’ Carroll out of IMG Academy.
