WATCH: Georgia football incoming tailback Kenny McIntosh spins, cuts and accelerates
ATHENS — Georgia 2019 running back signee Kenny McIntosh has yet to don the pads for the Bulldogs, but he’s already putting in the work.
McIntosh works out daily in South Florida, determined to be ready to report to the UGA campus at start of June .
A recent highlight tweet revealed McIntosh’s running attributes to include great vision, sharp cuts and spins, all within a powerful frame that might remind some of NFL star Le’Veon Bell.

Georgia has a talented stable of running backs, but with the Bulldogs facing the potential for a 15-game schedule, depth is important.
Junior D’Andre Swift looks to get the majority of the work with Brian Herrien expected to factor in heavily.
Sophomore James Cook had explosive moments last season and showed the ability to catch the football out of the backfield.
Redshirt freshman Zamir White has appeared in offseason workout videos and looks ready to play after not partaking in contact drills this spring. White, of course, is coming off knee surgery last August after suffering a torn ACL in fall drills.
McIntosh’s role will be determined by how quickly he picks up the playbook and protections, as much as his ability. The UGA staff let him know they felt the need for a bigger back in this signing class.
A 6-foot-1, 218-pounder from University School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., McIntosh was ranked the No. 11 running back and No. 187 player overall by the 247Sports composite.
McIntosh said at the time of his commitment he has championship aspirations and expectations at Georgia.
“Georgia is definitely growing in a great direction,” McIntosh told Jeff Sentell. “God has definitely been blessing that program and I think it is only going to go one way. That’s up. That’s to the championship each and every year and hopefully, win it all. Georgia has definitely been doing great things and I’ve been loving watching them.”
