One of the premier games of the 2019 college football season will be when the Notre Dame Fighting Irish travel to Athens to take on the Georgia Bulldogs on September 21. The Bulldogs were already thin at wide receiver, and now Georgia coach Kirby Smart announced that their top returning receiver, Jeremiah Holloman, has been removed from the team.

Kirby Smart’s statement to the Covington News:

“Jeremiah Holloman no longer represents the University of Georgia football program. We expect every member of our team to uphold the highest standards and values of the University of Georgia and Georgia football. It is disappointing when this does not happen.”

This all has to do with an assault allegation from the summer of 2018.

There were high expectations for Holloman on the field and as a leader as he entered his junior year. He had 24 receptions for 418 yards and 5 touchdowns as a sophomore last year. His removal means that the Bulldogs are without its top five receivers from 2018.
