ESPN Ranks Two Georgia Bulldogs Among The Nation’s 50 Best


This week ESPN forecast college football’s 50 best players for the 2018 season.

A couple of sophomore Dawgs, quarterback Jake Fromm and running back D’Andre Swift, were honored. Fromm, from Warner Robins, was selected 30th, while Philadelphia’s Swift was ranked 33rd.

ESPN.com wrote “Fromm has been somewhat overshadowed by (Alabama quarterback Tua) Tagovailoa’s emergence in the title game and No. 1 recruit Justin Fields’ arrival on campus, but Fromm deserves to stand on his own.”

As a true freshman, Fromm threw for 2,699 yards, 24 touchdowns against with 7 interceptions and led Georgia to the national Championship game.

Regarding Swift, ESPN.com wrote, “With longtime backs Sony Michel and Nick Chubb gone, it’s Swift’s turn in the spotlight. In a supporting role last season, the sophomore showed flashes of big-play ability, averaging 7.8 yards per touch (rushing and receiving).”

Houston Cougars’ junior defensive tackle Ed Oliver tops the list. Stanford senior running back Bryce Love is second and has a chance to become the first Heisman Trophy runner-up to win the award the following year since Georgia’s Herschel Walker in 1982.

Clemson and Alabama top the list with five selections each.
