Georgia Bulldogs Suspend Josh Harvey-Clemons For Season Opener


The Georgia Bulldogs will be without their starting safety Josh Harvey-Clemons, who has been suspended for the team’s season-opener against Clemson on August 31, following a marijuana incident on the Georgia campus.

Per the Atlanta Journal Constitution’s Georgia Bulldogs blog:

The incident that triggered the suspension occured on May 15, when police were reportedly called to a dorm room that had a strong odor of marijuana. Inside of the dorm room was Harvey-Clemons and tight end Ty Flournoy-Smith. The two admitted that they had smoked a blunt, but there was no physical evidence of marijuana found in the room. However, the incident was reported to campus police and the team’s coaching staff.

Since the incident, Flournoy-Smith has decided to transfer from the school while Harvey-Clemons will be serving out his suspension.

In the absence of Harvey-Clemons, junior Corey Moore or junior Connor Norman are expected to step up.
