Georgia senior RB Nick Chubb said that he has no concerns regarding the season-ending knee injury he suffered midway through the 2015 campaign.

"I’m healthy. I was healthy last year, I didn’t have any injuries, but I wasn’t 100 percent (either). But the rehab is over with now. I’m back doing my normal thing," Chubb said. He rushed for 1,130 yards and eight touchdowns last season. If the 5-foot-10, 228-pounder can put up 1,166 yards rushing during the coming campaign, he would tie former Arkansas RB Darren McFadden for the second-most career yards in SEC history. And if you really want to dream big, 1,835 yards would tie him with Herschel Walker for the most in conference history. Chubb is aiming to be a top-10 draft selection next spring.

Georgia five-star 2019 verbal WR commit Jadon Haselwood will visit Ohio State.

Rivals analyst Adam Friedman notes that Haselwood shares similarities as a player with blue-chip WR Trevon Grimes, whom the Buckeyes inked up with on National Signing Day this past February. Friedman also passes along that Oklahoma could receive a visit from the 6-foot-3, 175-pounder at an undetermined date down the road. Scout.com ranks Haselwood as the No. 13 overall prospect for the 2019 cycle.

Georgia received a verbal commitment from four-star 2018 TE John FitzPatrick.

FitzPatrick (6'6/232) made his presence felt at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in Atlanta earlier this offseason, with the title outlet referring to him as a "go-to guy" and noting that "his hands were a strength much of the time." On Rivals' 2018 master list, FitzPatrick ranks as the No. 216 overall prospect for the cycle. Bulldogs HC Kirby Smart has shown a knack for scooping up intriguing tight ends during his year-plus at the helm in Athens, as sophomore TE Isaac Nauta is already looking like a potential rock star.

Georgia coach Kirby Smart compared Georgia junior LB Roquan Smith to C.J. Mosley.

Smart made the comparison after being asked if Smith is similar to former first-round pick Rolando McClain, whom Smart coached at Alabama. "If I had to draw a comparison to anybody, it would probably be closer to C.J. Mosley athletically, the ability to cover and move in space," Smart said. Smart, of course, also coached Mosley while with the Tide. Smith, the No. 10 player in the ESPN 300 coming out of high school, had 95 stops last season.

Georgia senior RB Nick Chubb believes he can be a top-10 pick.

"(Leonard) Fournette and (Christian) McCaffrey went top 10. That's just amazing to me, knowing that if I do have a great season, or any other running back has a great season, we can get up there in the top 10," Chubb said. For now, Chubb acknowledges that he's been passed by Penn State's Saquon Barkley and LSU's Derrius Guice on the NFL's wish list. "I've been in that position where I was considered one of the top backs, and it's hard to stay consistent," he said. Last season, Chubb had a nice return from his devastating knee injury -- rushing for 1,130 yards on 5.0 ypc -- but he didn't look like the same runner that punished the SEC for 1,547 yards on 7.1 ypc as a freshman in 2014. Two years removed from the injury, we fully expect to see fireworks again.

Georgia HC Kirby Smart named sophomore QB Jacob Eason the starting quarterback.

But Smart left the door open for a potential challenge from true freshman Jake Fromm next month. Speaking at the SEC Media Days on Tuesday, Smart said: "Eason is our starter coming into the season and Jake Fromm’s got to do something to beat him out." Eason, the No. 2 pro-style quarterback in last cycle, was the Bulldogs' starter for most of last year. He struggled at times, leading some to believe that the hyped Fromm could possibly steal his job with a big fall camp. "Will Jake Fromm push Jacob Eason? Yeah, he already has," Smart said. "I think he’s made Jacob respect the game and understand the importance of knowing the ins and outs of every play. Jake does that." For what it's worth, we assume that Eason will retain the job and Fromm will be redshirted.

Georgia LB Roquan Smith singled out freshman S Richard LeCounte III as having made great strides as he gears up for his first season of collegiate play.

"He early enrolled to try to get a feel for things throughout the spring and whatnot, but I think he’s going to be really special," Smith said. LaCounte (5'11/176) was a five-star recruit for the 2017 cycle. Last summer, ESPN's Tom Luginbill compared him to Alabama S Eddie Jackson for his ability to change direction on a dime.

CBS Sports' Chris Trapasso ranks Georgia senior OLB Davin Bellamy as the No. 56 overall draft prospect.

"At 6-foot-5 and 240 pounds, Bellamy has quietly improved in each of his three seasons on the field for the Bulldogs," Trapasso wrote. Bellamy posted 51 tackles, nine TFL and five sacks last year.

ESPN's Alex Scarborough proposes Georgia senior WR Javon Wims as a sleeper in the Bulldogs' offense.

Last year, Wims appeared in 13 games, starting three. He finished the season with 17 catches for 190 yards and a score. Though that output was a tad underwhelming, Wims, a Rivals.com four-star prospect, showed his potential in a start at Kentucky, posting a team-best five catches for 90 yards. "At 6-foot-4 with good speed, he still has potential," Scarborough wrote. "If [Jacob] Eason takes the second-year leap everyone expects, Wims could become a good red-zone target."

ESPN's Tom Luginbill compared Georgia five-star 2018 verbal RB commit Zamir White to Alabama junior RB Damien Harris.

"They are very similar in size and stature, plus style," Luginbill writes. "Neither are overly dynamic as far as game-breaking ability, but both are very productive workhorses who can be relied upon." The analyst notes that White (6'0/205) is "fast enough to get the corner or split a seam and a strong, well-balanced runner who breaks tackles and pushes the pile with a low center of gravity." On the more critical side of the ledger, Luginbill is somewhat questioning of White's overall on-field vision. The newest baby Bulldog ranks as ESPN's No. 14 overall prospect for the 2018 cycle.

In their initial rankings for the 2019 class, Scout.com ranked Georgia five-star verbal DE commit Nolan Smith as the No. 1 player for the cycle.

Birds, bees, the first set of 2019 rankings filtering onto the internet. It is, indeed, summer. Smith (6'3/223) is the first member of football factory IMG Academy (Florida) to ever rank as Scout's No. 1 prospect. He has been committed to Georgia since the end of January.

Top 2018 RB recruit Zamir White announced his commitment to Georgia.

It is about time Georgia received a commitment from a top running back recruit. The school's history with running backs is deep, and recent recruits will remember Knowshon Moreno, Todd Gurley, Keith Marshall, Nick Chubb and Sony Michel. The latter two will spend their final season with the Bulldogs this year, so White could see immediate work with the team in 2018. He is widely considered the top recruit at his position and a five star athlete.

ESPN's Edward Aschoff ranked Georgia's backfield of sophomore QB Jacob Eason, senior RB Nick Chubb and senior RB Sony Michel as the second best in the SEC.

Aschoff slots Alabama as having the best SEC backfield, following them up with Georgia, Auburn, Missouri and Arkansas to round out his five best in the clubhouse. Chubb and Michel most definitely make for one of the best 1-2 running back punches in the conference, but if we are to quibble with Aschoff, we might slot Auburn (QB Jarrett Stidham, RBs Kerryon Johnson and Kamryn Pettway) over the Bulldogs. Johnson and Pettway rushed for 2,119 yards and 18 touchdowns last season, compared to the combined 1,970 yards and 12 touchdowns put up by Chubb/Michel. We think Stidham could potentially supercharge that offense.

Rivals notes that uncommitted four-star 2018 TE John FitzPatrick was "a go-to guy" at the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge.

"He was a go-to guy and he did have one drop, but his hands were a strength much of the time. He has real potential," passed along the Rivals staff. FitzPatrick ranks as the outlet's No. 216 overall prospect in the 2018 class. The 6-foot-6, 232-pounder has done a nice job on the camp circuit this offseason, as he also made his mark at the Rivals 3 Stripe Camp in Atlanta.

SEC Country's Oliver Connolly writes that Georgia sophomore QB Jacob Eason possesses the most arm talent of any quarterback in the conference.

"It’s not only power, Eason has an understanding of how to switch up the trajectory and velocity of throws to different spots on the field. He may be able to rip it as well as anyone in the country, but he doesn’t need to on every play. And he knows that," Connolly writes. There is no denying Eason's talent, but he has been receiving fire this offseason in regards to his passion, with one opposing coach telling Athlon Sports, "I really don't know how much he likes football." Setting aside whether or not he loves the sport to an arbitrary degree, Eason showed plenty of flashes last season while throwing for 2,430 yards with a 16/8 TD/INT ratio.
