Ex-Georgia DB Harvey-Clemons reportedly will transfer to Louisville
The grandfather of Josh Harvey-Clemons told 247Sports that the former Georgia safety plans to rejoin Todd Grantham at Louisville.
Harvey-Clemons, a former five-star recruit, was dismissed by Mark Richt for a violation of team rules in February. His brief career with the Bulldogs included a National Signing Day scare for UGA fans, one-game suspensions for the 2013 season opener at Clemson and the Gator Bowl against Nebraska, and at the time of his dismissal a three-game suspension for the 2014 season.
On the field, Harvey-Clemons ranked third on the team in tackles with 65 stops, added 5.5 tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and an interception as a sophomore in 2013.
According to InsideTheVille, Harvey-Clemons will take his official visit on Thursday and attend the Cardinals' spring game on Friday.
Signing with Louisville would reunite Harvey-Clemons with former UGA defensive coordinator Todd Grantham, hired by Bobby Petrino this offseason. According to Harvey-Clemons' grandfather, Grantham's presence on staff played a role in the decision.
"He wants to stick with Coach Grantham and his defensive system," Woodrow Clemons told 247Sports. "That Star position that he's able to play safety and outside linebacker and cover the back coming out or able to rush the quarterback. We kind of like that."
Woodrow Clemons said that his grandson plans to redshirt in 2014 and will have two years of eligibility left when he returns to the field in 2015.
