ATHENS - The UGA Football team are kings of college football, and they’re kings on the recruiting trail right now, too.

The Dawgs have the No. 1 recruiting class right now with three running backs on the commit list.

First you have Nate Frazier‍. Georgia’s highest-ranked running back commitment, the high four-star is an explosive back with wiggle and size at 5-foot-10 210-pounds. He checks all the boxes, and he’s currently ranked as the No. 2 RB prospect in the country.

Then there’s four-star Dwight Phillips, JR‍. Arguably the fastest prospect across the country in the 2024 class, Phillips brings game-changing speed and natural explosiveness. He’s true a difference maker and will be one of the fastest players in college football when he gets to Athens.

But don’t forget about Chauncey Bowens‍. The former Florida Gator commitment is the lowest-ranked Bulldog running back commitment, but make no mistake, the young man can really run the football. The 5-foot-11 215-pounder released his senior highlights this week, and Georgia fans should love watching them.

When you turn on the tape, one of the first things that stands out is his physical style of play. A thick, powerful back with plenty of size and muscle at 5-foot-11 215-pounds, Bowens showed this fall that he still has some elusiveness to his game. He’s shifty for his size, shows good footwork, and knows how to get down-hill.

He’s not a “burner”, but he has excellent straight-line speed for someone his size. He hits the hole hard and knows how to power his way through defenders. He’s a “yards after contact” back. He runs hard, runs with balance, and can be really tough to bring down by just one defender.

Through his first nine games of the season, Bowens rushed for 811 yards and 10 touchdowns, finding the end-zone in every game but one during that span. He’s looking to score every time he has the ball, and even when he doesn’t score, he’s leaving a bruise when he meets the defender. 

As a whole, there’s a lot to like about Bowens and what he brings to the table. He shows good vision, burst, and the ability to move the chains. A tackle-breaking machine who can consistently find the end-zone, Bowens is capable of carrying the rock for a big-time program like Georgia.

He’s got plenty of size already, making him a back who can wear down a defense late in games. It’s hard to find backs who can run like Bowens can at almost 220-pounds, and that’s what Dell McGee was looking for. He may not be the flashiest running back, but he’s certainly capable of having an outstanding career in Athens.

Bowens is ranked as the No. 17 RB prospect, the No. 29 prospect in Florida, and the No. 213 overall prospect in the country.
