Richard SamuelDaniel Shirey/US PresswireRB Richard Samuel, who'll be a senior next season, is ready to step into a leadership role in UGA's backfield. He's also excited about the variety of running styles coaches will have at their disposal.

ATHENS, Ga. -- Two of the nation's top running back prospects already have bought Mark Richt's sales pitch about Georgia's glaring needs at the position.

Now that Keith Marshall (Raleigh, N.C./Millbrook) and Todd Gurley (Tarboro, N.C./Tarboro) -- ESPNU's Nos. 2 and 11 running back prospects, respectively, for 2012 -- are on board, the Bulldogs are unlikely to suffer from the depth problems that plagued them at points last season.
