Georgia will have a full backfield in 2021, after James Cook announced his return last week. Cook was Georgia’s second-leading rusher in 2020, as he finished with 303 yards in eight games. He also added 225 receiving yards as well.

Other players returning include Jordan Davis, Devonte Wyatt, Adam Anderson, Jamaree Salyer and Justin Shaffer.

Kenny McIntosh, Kendall Milton and Daijun Edwards all return as well for Georgia in 2021. Each running back flashed at various times during the 2020 campaign, as they all finished with at least 190 rushing yards last season.

Georgia also signed 4-star running back Lovasea’ Carroll out of IMG Academy. Since Kirby Smart took over the program in 2016, the Bulldogs have always had at least five scholarship running backs on the roster.

The Bulldogs will also bring back quarterback JT Daniels, who made the announcement official last Tuesday. Georgia could have one of the top passing offenses in the country next season, as Daniels will get a full offseason working with a host of weapons. Georgia’s top-five pass catchers in terms of yardage will all return for the 2021 season.
