Georgia sophomore RB Ken Malcome will not be handed the starting RB position, despite being the odds on favorite to open the season at that spot.
Malcome is seemingly the only running back left from the 2011 season but with be joined by senior Richard Samuel, who made the switch from fullback, and freshmen Keith Marshall and Todd Gurley. When asked about the position, junior quarterback Aaron Murray stated, "we have Richard, who’s probably going to get the majority of the [practice] reps, so I know he knows everything." Head coach Mark Richt is known for keeping the hot hand on the field, specifically if it involves a freshman, so Malcome will need to produce early to hold on to the job.
