The NCAA investigators tour around the SEC’s next stop is Athens, Georgia. We’ve seen USC, Florida and Alabama hit over the past week so it probably shouldn’t come as any surprise the Bulldogs were going to get in the mix at some point.
The bigger story in this neck of the woods is the Georgia player that is being mentioned. That would be former Summerville star and first team All-SEC wide receiver A.J. Green. The NCAA wants to know if Green was at the notorious party in Miami that USC tight end Weslye Saunders and other prominent football players are accused of attending. The party was allegedly put together by a sports agent.
Green has denied the accusation. He said told a reporter today that he has never even been to Miami and that he is not worried about the NCAA inquiry. Bulldogs coach Mark Richt didn’t shed much light on the situation when he spoke at the SEC Media Days today. He said he was told not to comment until the investigation is complete.
Later today we will post all of Richt’s comments here at SportsTalkSC.
