ATHENS, Ga. (UGA/WRCB) -- Running back Ken Malcome nearly left the University of Georgia a year ago, but ultimately decided to stick with the Bulldogs.
Now he plans to follow through on his original plan.
Malcome informed UGA coaches he plans to transfer to another school. The redshirt sophomore, who fell to third on the depth chart last year behind freshman phenoms Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall, said he's looking for somewhere with a better chance to get on the field.
"I have made this decision because I think I can get more playing time some place else," Malcome said in a university release. "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."
Malcome, a 6-0, 226-pound native of Decatur, carried the ball 57 times this season for 274 yards (4.8 avg.) and two touchdowns. He started the 2012 opener and played in ten games this past season.
Malcome finishes his career at Georgia with 446 yards rushing and two scores to go along with two catches for 23 yards in two seasons.
"We are very appreciative of Ken's contributions to our program and will certainly assist him any way we can in finding a school to continue his career," said Richt. "We wish him nothing but the best."
