Georgia always seems to be on the mind of Todd Gurley.
Fresh off signing a free-agent contract with the Atlanta Falcons last week, Gurley tweeted out a “Homecoming” video on Wednesday that was 80 seconds long. More than half of the video (see it at very bottom) had to do with Gurley’s torrid love affair with UGA.
If you didn’t know any different, you would think that Gurley was born and bred in Georgia – when in fact Gurley was raised inTarboro, N.C.
In fact, perhaps the best part of the video is footage from Gurley’s commitment ceremony from 2011, when he put on the cap of UGA over several other schools, including Clemson.
If you remember, Gurley was sort of an afterthought in that year’s recruiting class because the Bulldogs signed the nation’s No. 1 running back, Keith Marshall, who later had an injury-plagued career in college.
Back to Gurley: He is now one of Georgia’s favorite adopted sons after starring at UGA, and then returning to play for the state’s NFL team. Expect to see a lot of Bulldog fans and Gurley jerseys in the stands at Falcons games this upcoming season.
