Another report painting a very worrying picture of the Georgia Bulldogs has surfaced in the wake of recent claims coming from the Atlanta Journal-Constitution noting reckless and lawless behavior on the part of some of the players.
The offenses include driving under the influence, speeding, street racing, fighting, and bringing weapons onto campus.
The aforementioned publication has since published a new report in which it claims a 16-year-old recruit broke curfew, drank at a bar, and ended up in police custody under investigation for sexual assault and was still signed by the program.
“In a single weekend, a 16-year-old University of Georgia football recruit broke curfew, drank with potential teammates in an Athens bar and ended up in a police station, under investigation for sexual assault.
“Georgia signed him, anyway.”
Reporter Alan Judd also noted that, after a top defensive player was charged with rape, head coach Kirby Smart allowed eight players to go to court and demand his release, though the victim was a part-time staffer working for the program.
Another case involved a player taken to task for recording a sex act with an unconscious woman who was allowed to stay on the roster for a full season until he transferred.
He adds: “Others have stayed with the team while accused of transgressions that ranged from threatening or attacking their girlfriends to sexual assault.”
The 16-year-old in question was identified as defensive lineman Jamaal Jarrett, who committed to the Bulldogs last July.
Authorities ultimately decided not to charge the player a month after he accepted the university’s scholarship offer.
