Georgia third-string tailback Ken Malcome has decided to play his final two seasons at another school.
The 6-foot, 226-pounder from the Atlanta suburb of Decatur rushed for 274 yards (4.8 per carry) and two touchdowns this past season as a redshirt sophomore. He started the 2012 opener against Buffalo but was quickly supplanted by the touted freshman combination of Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall.
Gurley rushed for 1,385 yards (6.2 per carry) and Marshall added 759 (6.5), which resulted in Malcome playing in only 10 of Georgia’s 14 games.
“I have made this decision because I think I can get more playing time some place else,” Malcome said. “I have enjoyed my time at Georgia and appreciate the opportunity that Coach [Mark] Richt and the other coaches have given me here. I look forward to my next challenge.”
