Nation's top running back picks Bulldogs

Marshall with UGA cap on

ATLANTA  — Keith Marshall, one of the nation's top-rated high school running backs, says he will sign with Georgia.

Marshall, a football and track star from Millbrook High in Raleigh, N.C., said at a news conference at his school on Tuesday he chose Georgia over Clemson., and The Sporting News rank Marshall as their No. 1 running back prospect.

This is the second straight year Georgia has landed one of the nation's top running backs. Isaiah Crowell, from Carver High in Columbus, led No. 18 Georgia in rushing this season and on Monday was named the Southeastern Conference's Freshman of the Year by The Associated Press.

Marshall says he will enroll at the University of Georgia in January.
