The Countdown 2011: 83 Days to Go

Isaiah Crowell: High School Numbers and Predictions

Georgia has had many players with amazing high school statistics come to Athens to play for the Bulldogs. That case holds true for Georgia's top player in the class of 2011, Isaiah Crowell. Here's a look at the amazing stats he put up at Carver-Columbus.

2007: 22 carries, 219 yards, 3 TD

2008: 85 carries, 1,017 yards, 15 TD

2009: 175 carries, 1,915 yards, 25 TD

2010: 147 carries, 1,721 yards, 18 TD

Career Totals: 429 carries, 4,872 yards, 11.35 yards per carry, 61 TD

So what can we expect out of Crowell this fall? Marcus Lattimore rushed for 1,197 yards on 249 carries for South Carolina. This would be almost 100 carries more than Crowell had in any season during high school and with Caleb King and Ken Malcome around, I just don't see him getting more than 20 carries per game. Knowshon Moreno carried the ball 248 times as a freshman in 2007 despite splitting carries with senior Thomas Brown.

My prediction: 195 carries for 1,014 yards and 10 touchdowns.

I would take those numbers and be elated with them, especially if you threw in no game costing fumbles!
