DAMASCUS, GA (WALB) -  Southwest Georgia Academy running back Nile Knapp is heading to one of the top college teams in the NAIA.

Nile Knapp signed his scholarship to play at Lindenwood University in St. Charles, Missouri Thursday afternoon.

Lindenwood is expected to be ranked number one in the NAIA when the season starts.

Knapp has rushed for more than 6000 yards and scored 87 touchdowns in his high school career at three schools.

He was recruited as a tailback and is looking forward to joining a top ranked program like Lindenwood.

Nile Knapp said. "It is exciting. I have never been a part of anything like that before and I am really looking forward to it."

Nile Knapp played two seasons at Sherwood Christian Academy and transferred to Southwest Georgia Academy last year.
