According to Mike Hughes, former Georgia Bulldog safety Josh Harvey-Clemons plans to attend the University of Louisville. Woodrow Clemons, the grandfather of Josh Harvey-Clemons, told InsideTheVille.com on Wednesday night that his grandson plans to transfer to Louisville. Clemons was dismissed from Georgia in February of this year for a violation of team rules. This cbssports.com article says:
Harvey-Clemons already missed the Bulldogs’ Gator Bowl loss to Nebraska and faced a three-game suspension entering the 2014 season after reportedly violating the university’s marijuana-use policy for a second time. Harvey-Clemons was also suspended for the Bulldogs’ season-opening loss against Clemson after telling police that he had smoked marijuana in a dorm room.
In the 2013 season, Clemons recorded 66 tackles and 1 interception and recovered 3 fumbles (georgiadogs.com). He is listed at 6’5 and 212 pounds and was a 5-star prospect out of high school.
Louisville seems to be a logical landing spot for Clemons. Remember that defensive coordinator Todd Grantham came to UofL from Georgia, and Louisville was in his final 3 (along with Florida) when he made his decision to attend Georgia.
It looks like on the football field, the Cards are picking up a major player. We just have to hope that any issues that he has off the field get resolved.
I expect that he will have to sit out the 2014 season because of NCAA transfer rules. Either way, this will be a big pickup for Bobby Petrino.
