Los Angeles Rams running back Todd Gurley attended Georgia, so he is always obliged to root for the Bulldogs. However, he is also a huge fan of the Duke Blue Devils as he grew up in Tarboro, North Carolina, just over an hour away from Durham.
He even showed up at the Duke/North Carolina game at the end of the regular season and was recognized by the home crowd. Gurley decided to wish Duke good luck on their NCAA Tournament run with a cool Instagram post.
The Blue Devils have already started their Round of 64 game against UNC-Wilmington. It has been a back-and-forth game so far, but that doesn’t mean Gurley will let his team down in rooting for them.
Duke can take some solace in knowing that one of the top running backs in the NFL in Todd Gurley is supporting them throughout the tournament.
