UGASports Video: Samuel shows skills on O & D
One of the top players in not only Georgia, but the country is Richard Samuel. Samuel was named to the Rivals.com All-American team as a running back, but he is so talented that he could end up at linebacker on the next level. On the next level he will play for the University of Georgia and the Bulldogs have one of the best on their commitment list. UGASports.com filmed Samuel last fall and he shined on both sides of the ball. He has skills at running back and linebacker.
Prospect: Richard Samuel
High School: Cass (Cartersville, Ga.)
Position: Athlete (RB/LB)
Vitals: 6-2, 204-pounds, 4.47
Offers: Auburn, Clemson, Florida, Georgia, Tennessee, Notre Dame, and others.
Favorites: Committed to Georgia.
The Skinny: Samuel is a very gifted athlete that can take it the house as a running back or make plays from sideline to sideline as a linebacker. He could play either position at UGA and play it very well. He has great speed, great strength, and an even more impressive work ethic. He is only 15-years old, so he is still growing. It will be interesting to see where he plays in Athens, but it will be hard for Coach Richt to put him in a bad position. Samuel is just too talented.
UGASports.com traveled to North Hall last fall to see Samuel in action. He was everything we expected him to be and he showed what he could do on both sides of the ball.
You don't want to miss this video where Samuel runs the ball well, catches a 70-yard touchdown pass, makes tackle after tackles, and delivers some punishing hits. Check out this UGASports Video now.
