UGA Football Preseason: Freshman Tailback Todd Gurley Settling In

University of Georgia freshman Todd Gurley seems to be getting more and more comfortable as fall practice progresses, heading into the team's Sept. 1 opener at home against Buffalo. In two team scrimmages so far, the North Carolina native has earned the praise that he's received this far.

In the team's first scrimmage, Gurley ran for 58 yards and a touchdown on six carries, and in the second scrimmage, he rushed for 87 yards and two touchdowns on just seven carries.

According to, Gurley links his early success to becoming more comfortable with the offense:

"Just coming in from day one and really not knowing nothing and now getting a feel for the system," Gurley said. "Being able to come out in the scrimmage and show what I can do, I feel like I came a long way from the first day of camp."
