Adam Choice recruit scouting report: tough Georgia running back

Adam Choice - Bud Elliott (SB Nation Recruiting)

Despite being only 5'9, Adam Choice is an excellent running back prospect.

Adam Choice is one of the best running back recruits in the Southeast. Out of Thomasville (Ga.) Thomas County Central High School, Choice stands 5'9 and weighs in at 196 pounds.

Choice is a consensus four-star recruit and is widely considered one of the 20 best running back recruits nationally.

He holds offers from Florida, Georgia, Georgia Tech, Auburn, Kentucky, N.C. State, USF, Tennessee and Wisconsin, and is receiving interest from many others as well.

Bud Elliott, National Recruiting Analyst: Choice is a very solidly built running back recruit out of a storied South Georgia program. Well, I should say projected running back, because he actually plays quarterback in high school in the Flexbone offense. Watching this film is a lot like watching Georgia Tech, even down to the uniforms. But even though he plays quarterback, there is plenty of film of him running the football to evaluate, and at the college level, he is all running back.

Choice is a very tough, physical runner. He runs low to the ground and runs through contact, giving defenders very little to tackle, and refusing to go down to arm tackles. He is very productive and runs with good instincts.

Choice appears to have good vision, which he pairs with solid change of direction. He also has excellent balance.

There are a few questions about Choice's game. First, he is quicker than he is fast. I don't see an extra gear. I also think that at 5'9 and 196 pounds, he is somewhat close to his physical ceiling. And I have no idea if he can be an asset in the passing game.

But despite that, I am a big fan of Choice's game. He could start for a lot of college teams right now, and shows the potential to be very productive at the BCS level. His running style reminds me somewhat of Maurice Jones-Drew, formerly of UCLA and currently a member of the Jackvonville Jaguars. He is also a similar runner to Michael Dyer, formerly of Auburn.

In addition to being a smart player, Choice is also a good baseball player.
