Georgia kicks DL Jonathan Taylor off the team following his arrest
The University of Georgia announced that defensive lineman Jonathan Taylor has been dismissed from the team.
The announcement comes after Taylor was arrested for felony aggravated assault/family violence for allegedly choking and striking his girlfriend with a closed fist following an argument. He was released on a $5,000 bond at 11:45 a.m. Wednesday.
Taylor, a third-year sophomore, appeared in 10 games last season, making nine tackles and a sack. The former four-star recruit was expected to be in the rotation up front this fall for the Bulldogs.
He becomes the Bulldogs’ third defensive player to be dismissed this off-season; the other two being Josh Harvey-Clemons and Tray Matthews. JHC transferred to Louisville, while Tray Matthews transferred to Auburn.
