Watch Georgia freshman RB Nick Chubb lay out a fullback in practice (Video)

Back in May, we showed you the insane vertical leap of Georgia freshman Nick Chubb. Now that the Rivals four-star running back is on campus and participating in practice, it didn’t take long for him to do something else to impress us.

During blocking drills in Wednesday morning’s practice, Chubb knocked junior 230-pound fullback Merritt Hall right on his behind. Hall was even holding a pad, but the strength of Chubb proved to be too much. Take a look at the video, which comes via BulldawgIllustrated.com.

Chubb measured in at 5-foot-10 and 228 pounds when he reported to campus. Before arriving, in addition to his vertical (which measured in at 41 inches at the Nike SPARQ finals), Chubb also ran the 40-yard dash in a blistering 4.44 seconds.

Chubb, the No. 35 overall prospect in the 2014 class, joins a crowded Bulldogs backfield with juniors Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall returning and five-star freshman Sony Michel also joining the team. While he may not see a ton of touches in 2014, based on athleticism alone, Chubb looks like a guy with a bright future.
