Thirty-five days remain until Georgia kicks off its season opener against Buffalo on Sept. 1. In the days counting down to the opener, DawgNation will profile, with our “Around the Hedges in 80 Days” series, a Bulldogs player we expect to make an impact. We will review each player’s career thus far and project his long-term potential as we progress through our alphabetical list, from center David Andrews to receiver Rantavious Wooten.

35. Ken Malcome
Sophomore, Running back
6-foot-0, 226 pounds


Fall forecast: When spring practice concluded, it was reasonable to wonder whether Malcome could really remain the co-No. 1 tailback alongside last year’s SEC Freshman of the Year Isaiah Crowell. After Crowell’s dismissal last month, Malcome enters preseason camp as Georgia’s top tailback. Now the question is whether he will hold onto the job ahead of Richard Samuel, Keith Marshall and Todd Gurley. He did some nice things at the end of last season and by all accounts had a great spring, but he has played only sparingly thus far. Let’s see how he fares the first time he gets 20 carries in a game before we pronounce him the starter for the season.
