Georgia dismisses WR Jeremiah Holloman amid investigation for assault

3 Comments

One of Georgia’s top wide receivers from 2018 with a bright upside for the upcoming season is no longer a part of the program. Jeremiah Holloman has been removed from the program shortly after allegations of assault form a 2018 incident have led to an investigation that is currently ongoing.

“Jeremiah Holloman no longer represents the University of Georgia football program,” Georgia head coach Kirby Smart said in a statement, as reported by The Covington News. “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 an alleged victim claiming she was choked by Holloman during an argument. As the police report indicates, 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 alleged victim sent him threatening messages suggesting someone would get him.

Holloman played in all 14 games for Georgia last season, accumulating 418 receiving yards and five touchdowns. He caught two touchdowns in Georgia’s 36-17 victory over Florida as the highlight of his 2018 season, although he also caught three passes for 61 yards and a touchdown in a nice road win at Missouri prior to that.
