Ken Malcome was one of the top-rated recruits coming out of high school, however his career with the University of Georgia has not gone as planned. Thus, the now-former Bulldogs back has announced that he will transfer to Southern Illinois, according to ESPN.
“They have a good tradition of running backs they rely heavily on the run game,” Malcome said.
As a freshman in 2011, Malcome played in six games and compiled 174 yards on 42 carries. He showed promise, and when fellow frosh Isaiah Crowell was kicked off the team, Malcome had been looking forward to an expanded role out of the backfield.
However, he was soon jumped on the depth chart by not one, but two incoming freshmen in Todd Gurley and Keith Marshall.
Malcome saw time in 10 games, taking 57 carries for 272 yards and two scores.
Southern Illinois is an FCS school. Being a level below FBS, in which Georgia plays, allows Malcome to suit up right away, as opposed to being forced to sit out a year.
