Georgia strong safety Josh Harvey-Clemons, who missed the Bulldogs' Gator Bowl loss to Nebraska following his second suspension of the season, has been dismissed from the team.
Coach Mark Richt announced Harvey-Clemons' dismissal in a brief statement released by Georgia on Tuesday.
Harvey-Clemons also was suspended for Georgia's opening game against Clemson. Each suspension followed what Georgia reported as an undisclosed violation of team rules - but published reports said that the rising junior was suspended for marijuana both times.
Harvey-Clemons had 66 tackles, an interception and a team-leading three fumble recoveries as a sophomore in 2013. He was a five-star prospect out of Lowndes High School in Valdosta. Harvey-Clemons picked Georgia on Signing Day in 2012, but in a bizarre twist, his grandfather would not sign his letter of intent for some unknown reason that day. The following day the grandfather, Woodrow Clemons, signed the letter of intent allowing Harvey-Clemons to play for the Bulldogs.
