As expected, an off-field incident will have on-field consequences for yet another Georgia football player.
At his press conference ahead of the start of summer camp, head coach Mark Richt confirmed that, per school policy, Davin Bellamy will be suspended for the first two games of the 2014 season. Bellamy was arrested last weekend and charged with driving under the influence.
Such an offseason offense requires UGA student-athletes be suspended for 20 percent of their team’s regular season games the upcoming season.
A three-star member of last year’s recruiting class, Bellamy took a redshirt for his true freshman season. He’s expected to compete for a backup job.
Bellamy was the seventh UGA player arrested this offseason, prompting athletic director Greg McGarity to publicly express his frustration with the recent spate of off-field incidents.
