ATHENS - Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs have one of the fastest prospects in the country heading to Athens in 2024.

That would be four-star running back commitment, Dwight Phillips Jr.

The track and field standout who also dominates on the gridiron, the Pebblebrook (GA) star stole the show this weekend at a state track meet, running a blazing 10.29 in the 100-meter, the fastest time in the country.

You read that correctly. Not only did he set the best time in Georgia, but he ran the fastest time for anyone across America.

In Georgia, second place went to South Atlanta standout Taye Seymore who ran a very impressive time of 10.74.

This is elite speed heading to Athens. He’ll be running the ball in Athens, but he’ll be a threat any time the ball is in his hands. He has elite straight-line speed, allowing him to fly past defenders with ease. However, he can also change directions on a dime and zig-zag his way for a long run if he needs too. He’s a natural runner, and he proved this weekend that he’s the fastest prospect in the country.

The Bulldogs have a loaded running back room in Athens right now, but they don’t have anyone on the current roster like Phillips. Look for his speed to bring more explosiveness to the Georgia offense when the time comes down the road.

The electric running back committed to the Bulldogs over a host of schools back on January 28th. He is following his father’s footsteps into the SEC. The elder Phillips ran track at Kentucky after winning state titles at Tucker High School in both basketball and track. 

Phillips Sr. went on to capture gold in long jump during the Athens Olympics in 2004. He was one of the most explosive athletes in his time, too, winning multiple world titles in long jump from 2003 to 2011. 

Phillips, Jr. ran for 774 yards on 62 carries with seven touchdowns as a running back. He added nine catches for 245 yards and two scores as well.
