Not that it should come as any surprise, since he set Georgia’s single-season record last season, but Asher Allen will handle kickoff returns again.

Running backs coach Tony Ball, who oversees kickoff returns, said he’s searching for some reliable backups among Remarcus Brown, Caleb King, Richard Samuel and Carlton Thomas. They’re the ones who got all the reps Saturday.

“Asher knows what he’s doing. I need to look at those guys so I don’t need to get Asher a bunch of reps,” Ball said. “… Right now, until I can feel comfortable with someone else being able to field kicks — and that’s the first thing you’ve got to be able to do — Asher’s the guy.”
