Malcome closing in on decision?

DECATUR - It's down to Florida and Georgia for Southwest DeKalb running back Kendrun Malcome. A decision is expected soon.

In an exclusive interview inside the school weightroom Monday afternoon, Malcome sat down with UGASports to talk about his choice which he anticipates making in the very near future.

"Right now it's come down to my top schools - Florida and Georgia - and I'm trying to narrow it down," Malcome said. "I feel like I need to commit to my school real soon and get it over with so I can focus on my schoolwork and my season here at Southwest DeKalb. Basically, I'm just ready to get it over with. I'm just really trying to decide whether I want to be a Bulldog or a Gator."

Malcome could make his choice known within the week, but first he's got to talk over a few things with the people closest to him.

He did say whatever school he chooses, that will be his final choice and would not be taking any more visits during the fall.

"I've got to talk to my coaches, talk to my family," Malcome said. "Everybody's been bugging me wondering what I'm going to do. That's another reason right there why I want to get it over with."

The decision won't be an easy one.

Malcome has visited to both schools on several different occasions and likes many aspects of both institutions.

He's bonded with coaches from both staffs.

"I've been to Florida a couple of times and hung out with Coach (Kenny) Carter, Jermaine Cunningham, Carlos Dunlap and they showed me a good time," Malcome said. "I stayed there a couple of days, met with Coach (Urban) Meyer and we just bonded."

But Georgia has stood out with Malcome as well.

"I've been there a couple of times, too. Coach (Bryan) McClendon we talked every other day. Coach (Rodney) Garner and I, we meet a couple of months ago and really bonded, too."

When he spoke to UGASports almost two months ago at Southwest Dekalb's spring game, Malcome indicated that he might wait until closer to Signing Day to announce his decision.

That's apparently no longer the case.

"There was a little doubt whether or not I should wait and see what my best options are," he said. "But I know what's best for me. Now, I just want to make sure I pick the right school."
