Georgia has dismissed the baseball player who allegedly made "racially derogatory comments" toward Georgia quarterback Justin Fields during Georgia's 38-12 win over Tennessee last weekend.

The school announced the dismissal of first baseman Adam Sasser in a brief release Wednesday afternoon. The statement from Georgia did not go into specifics of what led to Sasser's dismissal, but a report from UGASports.com earlier this week said Sasser was the student-athlete being investigated by the school following the alleged comments directed at Fields.

"We are aware of a reported incident this weekend involving conduct by one of our student-athletes. While we are limited in what we can say about the incident at this time, I want to reemphasize that we do not condone discriminatory behavior," Georgia AD Greg McGarity said in a statement Monday. "The University's Equal Opportunity Office thoroughly reviews all reported violations of our Non-Discrimination and Anti-Harassment Policy to ensure an appropriate response."

Fields is a freshman with the Bulldogs and was one of the highest-rated QBs in the 2018 recruiting class. Sasser was one of the best hitters on Georgia's baseball team this past season.
