The most recent college football player to cannonball into the portal is far from a surprising entrant.
In late June, amidst an investigation into allegations of an alleged assault involving a female in the spring of 2018, Georgia announced that Jeremiah Holloman had been dismissed from Kirby Smart‘s football program. Less than a week later, an UGA official has confirmed that Holloman has placed his name into the NCAA transfer database, which allows other schools to contact him without receiving permission from his current university.
“Jeremiah Holloman no longer represents the University of Georgia football program,” a statement from the head coach confirming the wide receiver’s dismissal began. “We expect every member of our team to uphold the highest standards and values of the University of Georgia and Georgia football. It is disappointing when this does not happen.”
The incident in question reportedly was after Georgia’s spring game in 2018, with the alleged victim claiming she was choked by Holloman during an argument. As the police report indicated, Holloman was restrained by his brother, but Holloman allegedly punched the alleged victim in the face. The alleged victim received stitches for her wounds but did not initially reveal the true cause of the injury. Holloman reportedly told police the unidentified female sent him threatening messages suggesting someone would get him.
This past season as a sophomore, Holloman was third on the Bulldogs in touchdown receptions (five), fourth in receiving yards (418) and fifth in receptions (24). His 17.4 yards per catch was also tops on the team.
