2011's attrition makes Turman key
With the addition of ESPN 300 running back A.J. Turman (Orlando, Fla./Boone), Georgia has filled a basic need for the 2013 class with one of the most productive running backs in the Southeast, continuing the success the Bulldogs have had in recent years recruiting the position.
Once Turman arrives in Athens next year, he will compete with Ken Malcome for the third running back spot. In 2011, Georgia was forced to start a former walk-on in Brandon Harton and back him up with another in Kyle Karempelis because they were without four other scholarship running backs. That game provided a stark reminder of just how easily depth can diminish, especially at running back, making it imperative that the Bulldogs avoid that type of situation in the future.
