The Georgia Bulldogs coaching staff has not yet come to a decision on where Malcolm Mitchell will be playing in the future, according to The Telegraph's Seth Emerson. Defensive coordinator Todd Grantham and offensive coordinator Mike Bobo both want Mitchell to play on their side of the ball, but Mitchell himself says that he'd prefer to remain on offense. Head coach Mark Richt will reportedly have the final say on where the sophomore from Valdosta, GA, will play going forward.

Mitchell, who split time between wide receiver and cornerback, caught 40 passes for 572 yards and four touchdowns this season, while also handling some punt and kick returning duties. He also recorded 12 tackles and three passes broken up while playing on defense. Mitchell started the first four games of the season at cornerback, and then moved over to the offensive side of the ball for the Tennessee game on Sept. 29.
