When we last heard from Georgia Bulldogs safety Josh Harvey-Clemons, he was getting suspended for the first 3 games of the 2014 season as a result of alleged marijuana use and/or an academic issue. Now, there is a report circulating that Harvey-Clemons has been dismissed from the football program.

Honestly, it wouldn’t be a surprise if the above report from Gentry Estes was true, simply because Harvey-Clemons has run afoul of Mark Richt’s policies on several occasions. The reported 3-game suspension for 2014 wasn’t the first time he’s been in trouble, and with repeat offenders, the risk of an expulsion from the team always seems to be greater.
On the field, Harvey-Clemons appeared in 11 games and generated 66 total tackles as a sophomore in 2013, but I’m positive that Mark Richt and new defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt had foreseen some sort of scenario to play without him next season. It’s important to note that the team and/or the university have not confirmed this dismissal as of the time of this post, but if the past is any indication, we won’t be hearing from Josh Harvey-Clemons as a member of the UGA football program anytime soon.
