Nick Saban Get Georgia’s # 1 Running Back

30 May

Sometimes the rich just continue to get richer.

Alabama football is certainly excited about their new jewel. Nick Saban has done it again, nabbing the best running back in the state of Georgia Kenyan Drake.

Last year in Drake’s junior season he ran for almost 1,200 yards and 12 TD’s while also adding an additional 600 yards and eight TD’s receiving.

The news must come hard for Georgia Tech who has been publicly the front runner for Drake’s services. Drake said that his decision came down to Alabama’s facilities, coaching staff, and the excellent academics at ‘Bama.

Next season Drake will lead Power Springs, Georgia Hillgrove High School as the best running back in the state but his path to running back at Alabama may be hampered by his small frame. In order for the 6’1 195 pound running back to grace the field as a true back at ‘Bama he must put on some weight. Nevertheless, his talents will result in playing time somewhere in the Alabama offensive system.
