Georgia Vs. Buffalo: Malcolm Mitchell Adjusting To Life On Defense

When Malcolm Mitchell decided he to play football at Georgia, instead of playing cornerback -- the position he was being recruited for -- he decided he wanted to play wide receiver instead. He made the transition from defense to offense almost seamlessly and was one of the Bulldogs best wideouts last season.

But this season, Mitchell is moving back to cornerback to help Georgia in the secondary.

And even though he still feels he's a wide receiver at heart and misses playing offense, Mitchell fully expects to be a two-way player and compete on both sides of the ball one day according to a Macon.com report:

"But right now I really don't want to worry about it. Because the decision's been made. It's been put in process. So, at the end of the day that was a choice that I've just gotta deal with right now. I feel like it's gonna work out good.

"But when I look at the receivers, I know I'm gonna be back over there eventually. Or I'll be doing both. So as long as I can do both, it doesn't matter how much or which one I do."
