Safety Josh Harvey-Clemons is headed for a reunion with Todd Grantham at Louisville, which means Georgia should avoid at least another regular season game against another player dismissed from its program.
Harvey-Clemons plans to transfer to Louisville, his grandfather told InsideTheVille.com.
“He wants to stick with coach Grantham and his defensive system,” Woodrow Clemons said. “That Star position that he’s able to play safety and outside linebacker and cover the back coming out or able to rush the quarterback. We kind of like that.”
Georgia shouldn’t see Harvey-Clemons again unless they happen to meet in the new four-team playoffs. It seems highly unlikely that Georgia would add Louisville to its schedule given that Grantham, the former Georgia defensive coordinator who left in January, and now Harvey-Clemons are there.
Quarterbacks Nick Marshall and Zach Mettenberger, each sent packing after off-field trouble while at Georgia, gave the Bulldogs all they could handle last year. Marshall threw the game-winning tipped touchdown pass for Auburn last year and the Bulldogs won a shootout over LSU and Mettenberger.
Harvey-Clemons was suspended for the opener last season for violating Georgia’s drug policy and was serving a four-game suspension when he was dismissed from the team in February.
Harvey-Clemons, Georgia’s third leading tackler last season, will sit out this coming season and have two years of eligibility remaining.
