Georgia's A.J. Turman hoping to be factor at tailback

Black team players celebrate a touchdown against the Red team with running back A.J. Turman during Georgia's spring NCAA college football game Saturday, April 11, 2015, in Athens, Ga.

Last Saturday's G-Day performance by Georgia redshirt sophomore tailback A.J. Turman can be viewed a couple of ways.

The 6-foot, 212-pounder from Orlando rushed 26 times for 106 yards and two touchdowns for the second-team offense against the second-team defense and led the Black to a 24-17 victory. Yet take away his 52-yard touchdown run midway through the third quarter, and Turman had 25 carries for 54 yards, or essentially 2 yards a carry.

However it's framed, Turman at long last has been witnessed by Bulldogs backers after an injury-plagued start to his college career.

"It felt great to be out there playing again in front of fans," a beaming Turman said after G-Day. "It felt like I was at home. I'm 100 percent healthy right now, and I want to train really hard this summer."
