Josh Harvey-Clemons Suspended for First Three Games of 2014 Season

Safety Josh Harvey-Clemons will be suspended for the first three games of the 2014 football season, the AJC has reported.

Harvey-Clemons was suspended for Georgia’s bowl game against Nebraska on Jan. 1, and it was widely believed it was a one-game suspension due to academics.

But the AJC has learned through sources that Harvey-Clemons’ suspension was marijuana-related, and it’s his second such suspension. Therefore, due to University of Georgia policy, Josh Harvey-Clemons will be suspended for a total of four games.

Last February, Harvey-Clemons ran afoul of the UGA police and admitted to smoking marijuana along with teammate Ty Flournoy-Smith. Flournoy-Smith later transferred to a junior college.

Harvey-Clemons missed Georgia’s 2013 season opener at Clemson, and the Bulldogs lost that game 38-35. Georgia also lost to Nebraska 24-19 in the Gator Bowl, and Harvey-Clemons missed that game as the first part of his latest suspension.

“I’m not giving up on him and we’ll get over this hurdle,” Woodrow Clemons, Josh’s father, told the AJC. “He’s an excellent player and Georgia needs him. And he’s very excited about (playing for) Coach Pruitt and playing next season.”

Georgia’s first three games of the 2014 season are vs. Clemson (Aug. 30), at South Carolina (Sept. 13), and vs. Troy (Sept. 20).

The Bulldogs will also be without wide receiver Justin Scott-Wesley for the opener against Clemson. Scott-Wesley was arrested and charged on October 31, 2013 with possession/use of a drug object.
