Nope. Nothing. Not a thing.
Strongly committed. Committed to the G.
Those answers should properly convey the feelings of 4-star RBs Toneil Carter and D’Andre Swift when it comes to how the big Georgia news of the day affects their recruiting decisions.
In case you haven’t heard, that news flash was the return of prize RBs Nick Chubb and Sony Michel for their senior seasons in Athens.
The next question that arises on the recruiting front would be how does that affect Georgia’s recruiting ties to a couple of All-American RBs that are committed to sign with UGA in the Class of 2017.

Pretty sure that was going to be the next obvious question. I just went and got that out of the way right at the jump at the top of this post.
4-star Texan Toneil Carter will enroll in January. He visited with DawgNation’s Chip Towers recently. He has had a monumental journey to his status as one of the nation’s elite backs this year.
Pennsylvania gem D’Andre Swift is set to arrive over the summer. UGA running backs coach Dell McGee was instrumental in his decision to fly South for his college career and commit to Georgia.
Swift rates as the nation’s No. 4 RB. Carter checks in at No. 7.
Their fathers and or guardians both told DawgNation on Thursday in no uncertain terms that Chubb and Michel’s return will not affect their son’s decisions at all.

Both players remain strongly committed to Georgia in spite of an opportunity to command major playing time diminishing for 2017.
The news cycle for today ranks as a stout recruiting effort all the way around. Getting Chubb and Michel to return is an astounding feat in this age of professional opportunity and the limited shelf life at the running back position.
Getting a pair of All-American tailbacks to stick with Georgia when the chances of them playing right away have lessened is an equally impressive feat.
