Georgia’s signing class gets late boost with RB Herrien
ATHENS, Ga. (AP) – Georgia’s 2016 signing class is receiving a late boost with the addition of New Manchester High School running back Brian Herrien.
Georgia on Wednesday said it has received certified financial aid papers from Herrien. The running back plans to enroll at the University of Georgia in June.
The 6-foot-1, 210-pound Herrien ran for almost 2,000 yards last season. He emerged as a major college recruit when he boosted his grade point average and scored an 18 on the ACT.
Herrien had a signing ceremony at his school in Douglasville, Georgia, on Tuesday.
The addition of Herrien addresses a key need. New Georgia coach Kirby Smith has expressed concern about depth at running back as star Nick Chubb continues to recover from a serious knee injury.
