Running back D’Andre Swift foregoes his senior season to enter the 2020 NFL Draft after a memorable Georgia football career.
The most recent honor graduate of “Running Back U” is D’Andre Swift. The future NFL star came to Georgia football in 2017 as an overshadowed running back from Philadelphia. Nick Chubb and Sony Michel’s returns, and Zamir White’s commitment weeks before the 2017 season began caused many to forget about Swift and his potential.
Swift quickly reminded everyone why the 247Sports Composite ranked him No. 33 overall in the 2017 class. He excelled as Chubb’s and Michel’s understudy, gaining 771 yards of total offense behind them. In every year after, Swift outdid himself, reaching 1,346 yards of offense as a sophomore and 1,434 as a junior. Swift ends his Georgia football career with 3,551 yards of total offense, 1,885 of which coming on the ground. He added 25 total touchdowns.
Swift wasn’t just an effective running back, he was incredibly entertaining. He had the potential to pop off big runs at any moment and had some of the most fun four-yard runs you’ll ever watch.
Some of his plays stand out more than others. Swift had his 60-plus-yard game clinchers and several sub-35-yard spectacles. D’Andre Swift’s greatest plays don’t just belong on his personal highlight film he’ll surely add to in the NFL, they belong among the greatest plays in Georgia football history. Here are some of Swift’s most memorable plays as a Georgia Bulldog.
