ATHENS, Ga. -- The backfield has been in a constant state of flux through the last year for Georgia, with Caleb King and Washuan Ealey, the top two returning rushers, both departing in the offseason.

Scatback Carlton Thomas has been called on for increased carries, and former running back turned linebacker Richard Samuel was asked to move back to offense to get the tough yards for Georgia. Both will be seniors next year, and Georgia is hoping to replace them with playmakers to pair with freshman sensation Isaiah Crowell, giving the Bulldogs enough firepower to make it through the gantlet known as the Southeastern Conference schedule. They have identified their top targets, but will they be able to add them both?
