Video: Sony Michel high school highlightsFleet Georgia running back rushed for more than 1,000 varsity yards as an eighth-grader.
Few are clear where Sony Michel
will land in the 2018 NFL Draft.
Some believe he's a late first-round pick. Others think second round. Some experts think he can make an impact similar to what Kareem Hunt did in his rookie season
with the Kansas City Chiefs.
Hunt was the sixth running back taken in last year's draft, but he led the NFL with 1,327 rushing yards and 11 touchdowns overall.
The Georgia Bulldog has similar skills and talents. No one knows quite where he's going. He's difficult to grasp. He's definitely hard to catch.
Also a sprinter at American Heritage (Plantation, Fla.)
, Michel was a 4-star running back, the No. 20 recruit in the country overall from the Class of 2013 and No. 3 tailback, according to 247Sports.
He rushed for 1,833 yards and 24 touchdowns as a senior at American Heritage, leading the Patriots to a 15-1 record and No. 21 in the MaxPreps final national rankings. He also averaged 26.3 yards per his nine receptions.
In four seasons at American Heritage, Michel piled up a whopping 6,659 career yards and 81 touchdowns. He averaged more than 8.0 yards per carry.
Michel was 5-foot-11 and 205 pounds as a senior and since then has put on 15 pounds of muscle. His best friend and roommate Nick Chubb formed perhaps the best running back tandem in the country at Georgia.
