Georgia’s starting safety Josh Harvey-Clemons will miss the first three games of the 2014 season against Clemson, South Carolina and Troy due to a continuation of the suspension that caused him to miss the Gator Bowl, according to the AJC.
The AJC learned the then-reported academic suspension was actually a second marijuana offense, which is a standard four-game suspension in the athletic association’s student-athlete disciplinary guidelines. It calls for no less than ‘30 percent of the season’ upon the second offense.
New defensive coordinator Jeremy Pruitt will be without his safety Harvey-Clemons to start the season against two top 25 opponents.
One of the reasons Steve Spurrier likes playing Georgia early in the season is because ‘they usually have two or three key players suspended’. I guess JHC really doesn’t like playing against Clemson.
