ATHENS — Georgia has received some stunning, but extremely good, news when it comes to next year’s team.
Star tailbacks Nick Chubb and Sony Michel will return for their senior years, head coach Kirby Smart announced after Thursday’s bowl practice. Both are juniors who were mulling entering the NFL draft.
Outside linebackers Lorenzo Carter and Davin Bellamy also announced they were returning.
Chubb and Michel joined head coach Kirby Smart at a post-practice press conference on Thursday. Smart was scheduled to be there, but Chubb, Michel, Carter and Bellamy walked in at the end.
