Running back Branson Robinson, from the recruiting class of 2022, will be a Dawg. Robinson announced his commitment decision Thursday afternoon. Robinson is the latest prospect to join the Bulldogs 2022 class. 

The 5-foot-10, 220-pounder from Germantown High School in Madison, Miss., is considered by recruiting experts to be one of the top running back prospects in the class. He is already drawing comparisons to former UGA great Nick Chubb for his physical running style. 

Robinson’s style is a product of his power and balance. Squatting over 600 pounds and benching 400 as a 16-year-old, Robinson has already become famous on the recruiting trail as an athlete that lives in the weight room.

Robinson’s frame lends itself to physicality, but that doesn’t mean he lacks speed. Clocked in a 4.49 40-yard dash, he spends his offseasons running track for Germantown. 

The speed and power Robinson plays with will help him stand out in Georgia’s crowded running back room. The expected departure of seniors Zamir White and James Cook to the NFL will free up some touches for the young back, and with his skill set, he has the ability to be a fantastic player. 

Georgia beat out schools such as Alabama and Tennessee to land Robinson. He now becomes the 12th member of the 2022 recruiting class for the Dawgs. 

Current Commits

  • QB Gunner Stockton
  • RB Branson Robinson
  • RB Jordan James
  • WR De'Nylon Morrissette
  • DL Tyre West
  • EDGE Darris Smith
  • LB Jalon Walker
  • LB CJ Washington
  • CB Marquis Groves-Killebrew
  • S JaCorey Thomas
  • S Malaki Starks
  • P Brett Thorson

Georgia appears to be done at the running back position for the 2022 with two players committed already. Now, Georgia will direct its attention to the rest of the offensive side of the ball. The offensive line is a problem area in this class considering they have yet to land one, and sealing the deal on their primary tight end prospect, Oscar Delp, is looking to be less of a lock than in previous weeks. Wide receiver is a position they will also need to add reinforcements.
