Now here’s a surprise…
Linebacker Jarvis Jones — recently tied to an AAU scandal from his high school days — has been cleared by the SEC and the NCAA to play for Georgia this fall. At least that’s the take of The Atlanta Journal-Constitution.
If, as expected, a press release is sent out this afternoon delivering that news, then it’s great news for the Dawgs who have been suffering from attrition all offseason.
A police investigation had found that Jones’ AAU coach had likely provided him with plane tickets while he was still in high school and possibly had given him a computer and/or cash during his one year at Southern Cal. Jones transferred back to Athens this past year.
The fact that Jones won’t have to sit for even a game should come as a pleasant surprise for Georgia fans.
No word yet on the status of UGA basketballer Kentavious Caldwell-Pope who was also tied to the AAU scandal.
