He should have went to South Carolina and asked for the Garcia Defense. Or LSU and Asked for the Honey Badger Defense. Mess around at Georgia or Kentucky and pay the price. There should be a conference wide drug policy.
Speaking from Destin, Florida and the SEC spring meetings, Mark Richt has confirmed that starting safety Josh Harvey-Clemons will not be on the field for Georgia’s season-opening game at Clemson. Harvey-Clemons was caught smoking marijuana in a UGA dorm room on May 15th.
Georgia’s drug policy requires a first-offender to miss 10% of his team’s competitions. Richt addressed the matter today, but he didn’t say much:
“Here’s what I’ll say on that: Josh Harvey-Clemons is going to miss the first game of the season. That’s all I’m going to say.”
Harvey-Clemson — a rising sophomore — played in eight of Georgia’s 14 games last season.
