ATHENS — Kirby Smart and the Georgia Bulldogs have one of the nation’s fastest hopes heading to Athens in 2024.
It would be a commitment of four-star running back, Dwight Phillips Jr.
The track star who also dominates on the gridiron, the Pebblebrook (GA) star stole the show this weekend at a state track meet, running a blistering 10.29 in the 100 yards, the fastest time in the country.
You read correctly. Not only did he set the fastest time in Georgia, but he also ran the fastest time for anyone across America.
In Georgia, second place went to South Atlanta star Taye Seymore, who clocked a very impressive 10.74.
This is elite speed towards Athens. He will head the ball in Athens, but he will be a threat every time the ball is in his hands. He has elite straight-line speed, allowing him to easily fly past defenders. However, he can also change direction in no time and zigzag a long distance if he needs to too. He’s a natural runner, and he proved this weekend that he’s the fastest prospect in the country.
The Bulldogs have a busy running room in Athens right now, but they don’t have anyone on the current roster like Phillips. Look for his speed to bring more explosiveness to the Georgian attack when the time comes.
The power running back made a commitment to the Bulldogs at a slew of schools on Jan. 28. He is following in his father’s footsteps in the SEC. The eldest Phillips ran track in Kentucky after winning state titles at Tucker High School in basketball and track.
Phillips Sr. went on to win gold in the long jump at the 2004 Athens Olympics. He was also one of the most explosive athletes of his time, winning multiple world titles in the long jump from 2003 to 2011.
Phillips, Jr. rushed for 774 yards on 62 carries with seven touchdowns as running back. He added nine catches for 245 yards and two scores as well.
