Want to attack every day with the latest Georgia football recruiting info? That’s the Intel. This rep has the latest with the flip of 4-star RB Chauncey Bowens. He ranks as the nation’s No. 12 RB and the No. 202 overall prospect for 2024 on the 247Sports Composite ratings. The On3 Industry Ranking has him as the No. 16 RB and the No. 214 overall prospect.
Chauncey Bowens is ranked among the nation’s top 20 RBs in the class of 2024.
He’s a solid 220 pounds. The 4-star RB was clocked this spring in the 100 meters at 10.88 seconds. That’s very good given his size and weight. The blend of speed and power is what Georgia has long looked for with its back to get those tough “Dawg yards” in the SEC.
Those are the carries where if a play is designed to get a decent SEC back five or six yards, then one of those “End Zone Stalkers” in Dell McGee’s room finds a way to make sure that play goes for at least eight or nine.
Bowens can do that.
But we know the average DawgNation reader by now. This latest bit of recruiting gymnastics from Georgia’s ace recruiter and running backs coach is going to initially be discussed for something else.
The ‘Dawgs just flipped Bowens from Florida. They did so while he was still on his official visit no less. While rumors of a flip have been swirling with Bowens, he didn’t even wait until his 48-hour official visit in Athens was up before making that move.
DawgNation readers rejoice in every commitment, but it is significantly sweeter for the UGA fan base when it inspires tears for that SEC rival down in Gainesville.
Bowens had been committed to the Gators since September of 2022. That’s no more.
The 5-foot-11, 220-pounder now becomes the 18th member of the 2024 Georgia recruiting class. He joins 4-star Mableton speed demon Dwight Phillips Jr. as the two RB prospects in this class at this time.
The 4-star RB goes from the fifth-highest-rated commitment in the Florida class to the 12th-highest-rated Bulldog pledge in the nation’s top-rated class across all the recruiting services.
Look for the ‘Dawgs to try to add a third RB in this class, if possible. They’d like to add 4-star Mater Dei RB Nathan Frazier in this class. Frazier is actually in Athens this weekend with Bowens on an unofficial visit.
