CBS Sports recently released a list of four potential breakout stars for the 2022 college football season.

On that list is Georgia junior running back Kendall Milton, who is ready to takeover a large workload now that Zamir White and James Cook are in the NFL.

Via CBS Sports:

The junior running back for the Bulldogs is in a perfect spot to become the SEC’s best running back after sitting behind Zamir White and James Cook during his first two years in Athens. Milton had 56 carries for 264 yards and one touchdown in 2021, and the 6-foot-1, 210 pounder could emerge as the No. 1 back in Athens before all is said and done. Why? Fellow running back Kenny McIntosh, who also could be considered in this section, is a more multi-faceted back who will likely take over Cook’s role as a more hybrid running back/receiver out of the backfield. That will leave the tough yards to Milton, who should top the 1,000-yard mark on a team that will likely play for the SEC Championship for the second straight season.  — Barrett Sallee

In two seasons at UGA, Milton has recorded 457 yards and a touchdown on 91 carries.

Alongside Kenny McIntosh, Milton will look to receive more carries this fall. He’s a former four-star recruit in the class of 2020.

The 6-foot-1, 220 pound back was the team’s fourth-leading rusher, with 264 yards on 56 carries last season.
