Harvey-Clemons dismissed from Bulldogs

ATHENS, GA (WALB) -

After two seasons, the once promising career for Josh Harvey-Clemons in Athens has come to a troubled end.

UGA announced Tuesday the Dawgs defensive back has been dismissed from the team for an unspecified violation of team rules.

The former Lowndes Viking's career was seemingly filled with potential.

He spent much of freshman season making special teams plays, before being named the team's defensive MVP during spring practice in 2013.

But Harvey-Clemons also ran into trouble that offseason. He was suspended for the season opening loss to Clemson after admitting to smoking marijuana in his room with former teammate Ty Flournoy-Smith.

He rebounded from his suspension to start 11 games for the Dawgs in 2013, racking up 65 tackles, good for third on the team.

But once again, the former five-star recruit ran into trouble.

Harvey-Clemons was suspended for the Gator Bowl for a then-unspecified violation of team rules.

He would later be suspended for the first three games of the 2014 season, reportedly part of a four-game suspension for a second marijuana violation.

Harvey-Clemons has two years of eligibility remaining.
