CALEB KING

Height: 5-11
Weight: 196 lbs.
School: Greater Atlanta Christian
Hometown: Norcross, GA
COMMITMENT: Georgia

PROFILE:

MVP of the U.S. Army All-American junior combine, Caleb King proved there he's one of the most explosive backs in the country. Clocking a 4.46 40-time, it's the Kings, Tylers, Devines, McKnights and Clays that make '07 heavy at the top with backfield scorers. Although McKnight, Devine and Tyler have been more prominent national names of late, that's because King didn't have all his senior season or the All-American Bowl to go head-to-head with his competition.

The Georgia commit was selected to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl but did not make trip. He suffered a helmet-to-the-leg hit - injuring his tibia - midway through the season that kept him from finishing his final high school year on the field and the trip to San Antonio. King built up 957 yards and 14 TDs before the injury early in the year.

His breakout junior year, he carried the ball 310 times for 2,776 yards and 20 TDs, averaging nine yards per carry.

He chose the Bulldogs over Auburn back in November.

TOM LEMMING'S TAKE:

This season he showed superior vision, speed, balance, strength and instincts and proved that one defender cannot bring him down. He is definitely one of the country's more complete backs. In track he's been timed in a 10.7 100 and a 24 flat 200 meters.
