Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post Dawgs add a big tailback

Tuesday June 30, 2009

Kendrun Malcome, a self-described “power running back” from SW DeKalb HS, has committed to join the Georgia signing class of 2010. He’s currently 6’0″ and 215 lb. but also has the speed and vision to be more than just a straight-ahead power runner.

Malcome had offers from Oklahoma, Florida, Tennessee, Alabama, FSU, and several other schools. The deciding factor seemed to be Georgia’s style of offense and reputation for putting running backs in the NFL. With Knowshon Moreno going in the first round this year and three other recent tailbacks making NFL squads, the system is in place for a quality tailback to succeed.

“My top two were Florida and Georgia. Oklahoma had another guy commit before me so it was Florida and Georgia. In the end, I felt my running style fit best at UGA. I like the pro style offense they run, and I took a long look at the lifelong benefits of being a Georgia alumnus,” Malcome told UGASports.com.

Georgia running backs coach Bryan McClendon was also a big part of Malcome’s decision. McClendon’s young age and Atlanta roots made it easy for Malcome to relate to the former Bulldog receiver, and that relationship was a factor. Malcome has friends and family like Mack Brown and T.J. Stripling also considering Georgia, so the good news from DeKalb County might not be finished just yet if Malcome has anything to say about it.
