Trey Sanders is a five-star running back from IMG Academy. He is a natural running back but holds the capabilities to be a do-it-all player. Sander’s has it all, power, speed, and agility. Runs downhill like a monster. According to his Hudl, he runs a 4.42 in the 40-yard dash. 247Sports ranks him as the No. 7 overall player, the No. 1 running back and the No. 2 prospect in Florida. Sanders breaks tackles like a veteran. He’s well rounded and could step on the field and play right away. He looks like he loves competition and works well with direction. Sanders Alabama on June 1, Oklahoma on April 26 and Georgia on April 21. Prior to that, he went to Florida on April 14 and April 7.
Once an Alabama commit, Sanders opened his recruitment back up on January 1 when he decided to de-commit from the Tide. It seems like a three-team battle right now between Florida, Alabama, and Georgia. Can Georgia add another five-star runningback to the 2019 class? I think yes, and this will be the five-star to do it.

Smith and his family came to G-Day on April 21 and visited Texas A&M on April 16. With his dad being a Florida legacy, it’ll be hard to pull him from the Gators. However, Smiths a back Georgia should pursue heavily and not give up on him till the ink hits the paper.

He sees the field well and waits on holes to develop. Smith’s a stud and going to be one of the next great backs of college football.
