Georgia Tailback Thomas To Transfer

Georgia tailback Carlton Thomas announced on Tuesday he plans to transfer and will look to play at another school next season.

Thomas, who rushed for 361 yards and and two touchdowns as a junior in 2011, has one season of eligibility remaining. Thomas said in a statement:

“This decision was based solely on the fact that this is my last year to play, and my parents and I felt like it was the right move to make. I want to make more of an impact on the field.  I didn’t want to disrupt Georgia’s team and preparation for next season so I made the final decision to leave earlier rather than later in the year.”

It’s certainly questionable how much of an impact Thomas would have been able to make at Georgia in 2012. The Bulldogs return standout sophomore Isaiah Crowell and welcome highly-touted freshmen Keith Marshall, who enrolled in school in January, and Todd Gurley.

Ken Malcome, Richard Samuel and Brandon Horton will also return and compete for playing time in a crowded Georgia backfield.

Richt Says Tailback Suspensions Weren’t Delayed

Asked today on the SEC teleconference about talk that Georgia might have delayed the suspensions of three tailbacks until after last week’s all-important Florida game, Mark Richt made it clear that that was not the case:


“People who make comments who don’t know probably shouldn’t, quite frankly, because they don’t know.  I’d be able to prove 100% that they’re wrong, but I’m not going to spend the time doing that.  The bottom line is we have rules and we follow them to the T.  We’ve got the utmost integrity in how we go about our business.  That’s how we’ve tried to build this program since the day I got here and we’re not going to change for any reason.”


Isaiah Crowell, Ken Malcome and Carlton Thomas will all miss Saturday’s game with New Mexico State after reportedly failing a drug test last week.
