Nation's top running back commits to UGA


Zamir White, the third Georgia running back commitment from North Carolina since 2012, made his commitment announcement Tuesday in front of a host of friends, family and teammates. White committed to UGA over Alabama, Clemson, North Carolina, and Ohio State. In his first three seasons of high school football, White has recorded 5,083 yards and 85 rushing touchdowns. White is a threat to go the distance every time he touches the ball.

The nation's No. 1-ranked running back is leaving his home state for college.

Rated the No. 1 running back in the 2018 class in the 247Sports composite rankings, White's decision to pick Georgia all but ends Ohio State's pursuit of running backs in the 2018 class.

Later, Trump and Modi had a working dinner, the first time Trump has played host to a foreign dignitary at a White House dinner. Trump says Modi had been scheduled to visit Washington earlier in the year but had postponed the trip for a local election.

White, who is 5-11, 211 pounds, was there but did not participate in the camp. The Bulldogs now have two ESPN 300 commitments for 2018, with White joining guard Warren Ericson.

The newly committed Dawg has had a lot of success in high school. He's the first Top 100 or Top 50 or Top 10 recruit for this cycle. This is due in large part to the fact that, according to 247Sports, White's mother has favored those two schools all throughout the recruitment process.

A Gurley-like true freshman campaign (1,385 yards, 7.3 yards per carry, 17 touchdowns) is a pie-in-the-sky expectation for White. Entering Tuesday their 2018 class ranked 45th in the country, according to Crowell, Marshall, Chubb and Michel were all five-star prospects.
