Nearly two months have passed since Georgia Bulldogs star safety Josh Harvey-Clemons was dismissed from the football program in Athens, but after that extended break, the young man has reportedly found a new home with Bobby Petrino, Todd Grantham and the Louisville Cardinals.

To be honest, it would be incredibly easy to make jokes about Petrino and Grantham in this space, for the purposes of this piece, we’ll stay above the fray. Harvey-Clemons is a high-level player despite his off-field issues in Athens, and at 6-foot-5 and 215 pounds, he could easily make an immediate impact at Louisville when he becomes eligible.
Because he elected to transfer to another FBS school, Harvey-Clemons will have two years of eligibility remaining but will have to sit out the 2014 season and wait until 2015 to make his debut. Georgia fans will certainly be interested in monitoring his progress, but more importantly, Mark Richt and company will be looking to replace his 66 tackles (and 5-star pedigree) from their defensive backfield.
Hopefully, new defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt already has that plan in place, but we’ll find out for sure in about five months. Stay tuned.
