Todd Gurley on ESPN 2014 Heisman Watch List

UGA junior running back Todd Gurley, widely regarded as the top rusher in the country, is included on ESPN’s 2014 Heisman Watch List.

Gurley is currently tied with Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller for third place with 17 points. Oregon QB Marcus Mariota is in first place, followed closely by FSU QB Jameis Winston in second.

These, of course, are preseason rankings by 10 ESPN experts and will change as the games are played.

Todd Gurley, a 6-foot-1, 232-pound native of Tarboro, North Carolina, rushed for 1,385 yards and 17 touchdowns as a freshman at UGA.

Despite missing 3.5 games last season due to injury, Gurley rushed for 989 yards and 10 touchdowns. He averaged 6.0 yards per carry in 2013 after averaging 6.2 as a freshman.

Gurley has also caught 53 passes for 558 yards and five touchdowns in two seasons.

Last night on the new SEC Network, Gurley stated that he was in the best shape of his life. He also said he’s done a lot of training that he hopes will deter further injuries.
