Georgia reserve defensive end Jeremy Longo will go on a medical scholarship, ending his Bulldogs career.
The rising redshirt junior has had “continuing injury issues,” according to the school.
He missed spring practice last year after undergoing knee surgery and also sustained a shoulder injury earlier in his career.
Longo, from Fort Lauderdale, Fla., met with coaches and doctors before the decision was reached. Players who are medically disqualified can remain on scholarship without it counting against the NCAA 85-scholarship limit.
Longo played in seven games, making three tackles. He received an outstanding scout-team award in December at the team’s annual gala.
