    ATLANTA -- The path is clear for Dedrick Mills to lead Georgia Techs running attack in 2017.Mills promises to walk a straight line in that path and avoid the problems which cut short his playing time this year.The transfer of leading rusher Marcus Marshall to James Madison leaves Mills as the heavy favorite to start at the B-back position the two shared much of 2016. Mills is expected to start when he completes his sometimes rocky freshman season in the TaxSlayer Bowl against Kentucky on Dec. 31.Mills missed three games while serving two suspensions for undisclosed violations of team rules. He still ran for 602 yards, only 22 fewer than Marshall, while easily leading the team with 11 rushing touchdowns.Without the suspensions , a good season could have been great. He says there will be no problems next year.Oh, next season there will be none of that, Mills said Monday. It just pushed me for next season. Ill be there every game. Im going hard, 100 percent.Mills (5-10, 217) was a perfect fit as the power back in coach Paul Johnsons spread-option offense. He scored the game-winning touchdown in Georgia Techs season-opening win over Boston College in Dubin. He had three-touchdown games against Vanderbilt and Miami.Johnson said Mills, from Ware County High School in Waycross, Georgia, got a jump on everybody by enrolling early for spring practice.Hes a guy who loves to play the game, Johnson said. I wish that hed played more games this year for whatever the circumstances were, but I think if hell continue to work and continue to do the right things hes got a bright future. He can be really good.Georgia Tech (8-4) will need Mills to be really good next season. The Yellow Jackets leader, quarterback Justin Thomas, will complete his career in the bowl game. The running backs, including Mills and Qua Searcy, who ran for the game-winning touchdown in the 28-27 win over Georgia to close the regular season, will need to fill the leadership void.With him leaving its going to take out a lot, said Mills of Thomas. ...Whoever plays quarterback next year is still going to have our faith, but I feel Ive got to go twice as hard as I did this season.Georgia Tech also is losing assistant coach Bryan Cook, who coached the quarterbacks and B-backs and has been named Georgia Southerns offensive coordinator.Cook said Marshalls transfer has led to more work for freshmen running backs Quaide Weimerskirch and KirVonte Benson in practice. Georgia Tech also will lose senior B-back Marcus Allen.Quaide and KirVonte have gotten more reps and hopefully theyll carry that forward, Cook said, adding he didnt know if the young backs will play in the bowl game.You can see a difference in those two now and where they were in August, no question, Cook said. So youd like them to pick up in the spring where theyre leaving off this week.Game notes The teams last bowl practice at Georgia Tech will be on Wednesday. The team is scheduled to arrive in Jacksonville on Dec. 27. ... Johnson said two freshman quarterbacks, Jay Jones and Lucas Johnson, were impressive in a scrimmage on Saturday for players not expected to play in the bowl game. They both looked good, made some plays, Johnson said. Theyre both good athletes.---More AP college football: www.collegefootball.ap.org and https://twitter.com/AP-Top25 Julian Brandt Jersey . - The Oakland Raiders re-signed offensive lineman Khalif Barnes on Friday. Ilkay Gundogan Jersey . A knee to the thigh might have stung him the most, but his sixth straight double-double made up for the brief burst of pain. http://www.germanysoccerpro.com/Mesut-Ozil-Germany-Jersey/ . In taking its goal tally to 99 in all competitions already this season, City delivered another demonstration of its lethal firepower at Etihad Stadium to set up a fourth-round match at home to another second-tier team -- Watford. Manuel Neuer Germany Jersey . The Clippers were angry about blowing a big lead; the Kings didnt like being in that kind of hole and nearly digging themselves out only to lose. Toni Kroos Germany Jersey . Westbrook has missed 27 games since having a procedure on Dec. 27 to deal with swelling in his injured right knee — the third operation on the knee in nine months. Jarryd Hayne has reportedly met the Australian Rugby Union (ARU) about a possible switch to the NSW Waratahs in a move that could ruin the Eels chances of getting their elite star back into the NRL at Parramatta.After failing to make the cut for Fijis Olympic sevens team for the Rio Games, it was widely expected the ex-San Francisco 49ers NFL player would return to the Eels.However, according to Fairfax Media, Hayne met ARU boss Bill Pulver in Sydney on Wednesday to discuss the prospect of joining fellow code-hopper Israel Folau at the Waratahs in Super Rugby. The meeting was convened at Haynes request despitte the fact his Fijian allegiance rules him out of playing for the Wallabies.ddddddddddddhat would lessen the chances of the ARU, already under financial pressure, topping up his Super Rugby salary unless a new precedent was set.We have had dialogue with Jarryd and discussed the potential opportunities available to him in rugby, Pulver said.Jarryd is obviously a very high-calibre athlete and we are always open to talking to a player who is genuinely interested in playing the game.
