  • A University of Georgia Police Department field case report released on Wednesday morning shed light on the arrest of Georgia senior defensive lineman Devonte Wyatt. Wyatt, one of nine returning defensive starters from the Bulldogs' Sugar Bowl-winning team, was arrested at 11:35 p.m. on Tuesday as the result of an earlier alleged incident on charges of criminal trespass, damage to property and family violence. RELATED: Starting Georgia defensive lineman arrested Tuesday The Athens-Clarke County jail booking report indicated the charges are of the misdemeanor variety. Wyatt remained incarcerated at the time of this writing, his bond is set at $1,500, per the report. According to the UGA Police Department, officers responded to a 911 call at 3:12 p.m. last Friday on at McWhorter Hall after a report of a male and female fighting. When the officers arrived, individuals matching the description of those fighting were walking out of the building. The report states that Wyatt was identified as one of the parties involved, and he was later stopped walking through the lobby of the building and identified. According to the reporting officer, it was learned there was a verbal altercation between the parties. Wyatt allegedly kicked the female's door 'multiple times from the hallway, damaging the door and forcing it open.' The report also states that Wyatt lived with the female, on and off, which led to the incident being classified as a 'Family Violence' incident. Both Wyatt and the female were released 'pending the completion of any follow-up investigation,' and 'neither party indicated they were in fear for their safety.' A warrant for Wyatt's arrest was issued at 4:40 p.m. on Monday, and the Athens-Clarke County booking reported indicates it was served at 11:35 p.m. on Tuesday. Georgia football coach Kirby Smart issued the following statement on Wednesday morning: 'I'm disappointed in the misconduct that is outlined in the incident report. This is not indicative of the behavior we expect from our student-athletes who represent the University of Georgia and our football program. We will address it internally in the appropriate way.' This story will be updated as more details emerge. The post Details of Georgia defensive lineman arrest emerge in UGA Police Department field case report appeared first on DawgNation.
  • INDIANAPOLIS It's prove-it time for the Georgia offensive linemen at the NFL combine, and millions of dollars is riding on it. Offensive tackles Andrew Thomas and Isaiah Wilson, along with offensive guard Solomon Kindley, represent three of the 10 Bulldogs taking part in the combine this year. They were part of a much-hyped Georgia offensive line unit nicknamed The Great Wall' in the preseason for its sheer size along with the expectations. RELATED: SEC expert breaks down Georgia football Great Wall' The Bulldogs' offensive line, however, was forced to utilize six different starting lineups in the first seven games on account of injuries. The group never seemed to be completely in sync. Thomas went on to have an All-American season at left tackle and is projected to be a first-round NFL pick. RELATED: Andrew Thomas first-round lock But Kindley and Wilson missed playing time with ankle injuries, and there has been a great deal of speculation that they would have been better off returning to Athens for another season under the direction of new offensive line coach Matt Luke. 'Georgia had some guys leave early on the offensive line,' Senior Bowl executive director and former NFL scout Jim Nagy said. 'I don't think a couple of them should have came out after watching the tape.' Indeed, for all the hype, Georgia's offensive line endured injuries at every position but left tackle. 'They had some issues in pass protection that Jake had to deal with,' said Nagy, who will provide NFL combine and draft commentary for ESPN. 'There was a lot of flux up there and from a communications standpoint, that's difficult,' Nagy said. 'Dealing with a lot of those issues and mixing and matching, that's tough on an O-Line coach. You can never get comfortable. I would attribute a lot to that.' Mel Kiper Jr. was more blunt in his assessment. 'Kindley, I have a third-fourth round-grade on,' Kiper said. 'Wilson, I have a fourth-round grade on. I thought he should have gone back. 'If I was Isaiah Wilson, I would have gone back to Georgia.' Kiper is more confident in Thomas. 'I have Andre Thomas at 18 (overall) to Miami,' Kiper said. 'Like I said before, he's still not where he needs to be. He's not a finished product. At 18 (overall), he would be a developmental left tackle.' NFL.com analyst Daniel Jeremiah said Thomas might not end up playing left tackle in the NFL. ' He's just on the ground a little bit for me, that was my concern, some of the balance issues,' Jeremiah said. 'I know some teams would like to kick him over to the right side. But I definitely think he's a first-round tackle. 'Isaiah Wilson is intriguing because he's so big, 6-7, 340 pounds. He's a little bit stiff, but he's got a lot of ability.' Nagy, like Kiper and Jeremiah, believes Thomas made the right call coming out after his junior season. 'I think Andrew Thomas is ready to come out,' Nagy said. 'But he's better in the run game than he is pass protection, if you're going strengths and weaknesses. 'He's not your prototype dancing bear left tackle. He's not an elite left tackle athlete out there against really good speed rushers.'

  • Georgia basketball is riding the first two-game SEC winning streak of Tom Crean's two-year tenure, but no one in the Bulldogs' locker room is comfortable or complement. And why would they be? South Carolina dominated Georgia the last time the teams' met, scoring a 75-59 win in Athens two weeks ago in a game that wasn't as close as the final score indicated. The Bulldogs (14-13, 4-10 SEC) play the Gamecocks (16-11, 8-6) at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday in 18,000-seat Colonial Life Arena (TV: SEC Network). 'There's really nobody that played well against South Carolina the first time in the sense of getting into the fight and being in the mix,' Crean said at a media availability on Tuesday in Stegeman Coliseum. 'They took advantage of it. We did not respond to the physicality of the game. We didn't cut, we didn't move the ball the way that we needed to, and we lost our way a little bit in that game when it came to fighting back.' Indeed, the Bulldogs look like they had hit the wall and finally had enough with the season. But then last week came, when Georgia beat then-No. 13 Auburn at home, 65-55, and went on the road and neat Vanderbilt 80-78. The Bulldogs were one of only three teams in the SEC to go 2-0 during the week, one more indication of just how balanced the league is this season. A Georgia win at South Carolina would give the program its first three-game win streak in league action in nearly three years (Feb. 23, Feb 25, March 1, 2017). Crean said his team is eager to get back on the floor after the exciting, last-second win at Vanderbilt. WATCH: Georgia celebrates like crazy after Vandy win 'It's always tough when you play South Carolina, but it's what we want to go get measured against right now,' said Crean, who dropped a 66-46 decision in Columbia last year. 'We're improving. I think we're getting better. I think we're learning, and now we get a chance to go on the road again before we come back for two in a row at home.' Georgia's Anthony Edwards, the projected No. 1 pick in the 2020 NBA Draft, continues to lead the nation's freshman in scoring (18.9 points per game). Crean said Edwards has handled the scrutiny that comes with his talent well, and shared how he prepared the 18-year-old young man for the criticism that was sure to come his way this season. 'We said this at the end of the summer: When you come in with the expectation level, when you come in with the ranking he has, there is no where to go but down from that,' Crean said. 'It wasn't like he was going up from that.' Edwards has handled criticism in stride and has maintained his joy for the game, which has had a carryover effect on the team. Freshman point guard Sahvir Wheeler is another Georgia player who always seems to be smiling. That attitude has led to the sort of resiliency that makes the Bulldogs a dangerous team to face at the end of the season for the bubble teams remaining on their schedule: South Carolina, Arkansas, Florida and LSU.

  • Georgia football senior defensive lineman Devonte Wyatt was arrested at 11:35 p.m. on Tuesday night by the Clark County Sheriff's Office on charges of criminal trespass and damage to property. The Athens-Clarke County jail booking report indicated the charges are of the misdemeanor variety, and Wyatt remained incarcerated at the time of this writing. Wyatt's bond is set at $1,500, per the report. It's the first public arrest of the new year for Coach Kirby Smart's football team, which is expected to compete for a championship in 2020. Wyatt is part of a defense considered among the best in the nation, returning nine starters off a unit that throttled Baylor in the Sugar Bowl, 26-14. Wyatt, who played in 13 of the 14 games and was second on the team with 19 QB Pressures, was among those nine returning starters. The Bulldogs appear to be in leadership in the locker room once again, a seemingly recurring issue for Smart's Georgia teams. Permanent captains Jake Fromm, D'Andre Swift, Andrew Thomas and J.R. Reed have all moved on, and there is no clear indication who will assume leadership roles. It was an issue for Georgia last offseason, as well,. Six players were arrested over a six-week span last spring, drawing national headlines. Four of the six players who were arrested last offseason are no longer with the team. Smart took harsh measures to stem the arrest trend that emerged last spring, making players run stadium steps in front of a crowd of boosters during a closed scrimmage. Smart has yet to issue a release or comment on Wyatt's arrest. The post Starting Georgia football defensive lineman arrested on criminal trespass charges appeared first on DawgNation.
  • Welcome to Good Day, UGA , your one-stop shop for Georgia footballnews and takes. Check us out every weekday morning for everything you need to know about Georgia football, recruiting, basketball and more. How Jacob Eason and Jake Fromm both got back together at 2020 NFL Draft INDIANAPOLIS Prior to the biggest week-long job interviews of their lives, Jacob Eason, Jake Fromm and Charlie Woerner all got a chance to catch-up. All three players and former Bulldogs are in Indianapolis this week taking part in the 2020 NFL Combine with hopes of impressing a future employer. But on Monday night, the three just got a chance to just be old pals catching up. 'He actually came and hung out with me and Charlie Woerner in our room last night and talked, and made things back the way they used to be,' Fromm said. 'So really excited for him and his future and whoever he ends up.' Eason and Woerner both arrived as members of Georgia's 2016 signing class, Kirby Smart's first at Georgia. Fromm arrived a year later. They all played key roles in shaping the early part of Smart's tenure at Georgia, with Eason starting 12 games as a freshman and Fromm starting 14 the next year. Given that both Eason and Fromm were top 50 overall prospects coming out of high school, it's no surprise that either player is speaking and meeting with NFL decision-makers this week. But how both Eason and Fromm the first two quarterbacks signed by Smart got to this point wasn't so simple. There were injuries, a transfer, concerns about arm strength and athleticism and just about everything you could imagine packed into their brief college careers. The two quarterbacks and the discourse around them at this point could not be more different. For Fromm, he's spent the week answering questions about his hand size while others have wondered just how strong his arm is. With Eason, his physical tools might almost be too big, as he measured just under 6-foot-6 and the concerns are about how accurate his rocket arm might be. But for a brief moment on Monday night, all of that was put on the backburner. They were chatting like they might have been doing so during at dining hall in Athens. 'We're all friends, we're all competing. You make friendships in this whole process,' Eason said. 'A guy like Jake, a guy like Charlie. It's always good to see guys like that become successful.' Eason arrived in Athens in 2016 as a 5-star quarterback and had long been billed as the savior of the program. Even after the coaching change from Mark Richt to Smart, Eason stuck with his pledge. He didn't beat out Greyson Lambert to start the 2016 season, but by the second game, he ascended to the starting quarterback spot for the Georgia Bulldogs. His first season was filled with some peaks game-winning drives on the road against Kentucky and Missouri and valleys defeats to rivals Florida and Georgia Tech. 'The biggest thing I would take away from that was playing in the SEC as an 18-year old freshman,' Eason said on how his time at Georgia helped him. 'It was a lot going on. It was a lot to handle. 'Getting that exposure early was huge. It allowed me to take it in, learn from it and progress throughout my career.' He completed 55 percent of his passes while throwing 16 touchdowns to eight interceptions. The Bulldogs went 8-5, but growth was expected. Even with Fromm coming in as a member of the 2017 recruiting class, Eason was still cemented as the quarterback of the future for Georgia. But Eason would make just one more start for the Bulldogs. Just minutes into the start of the 2017 season, Eason hurt his knee against Appalachian State. Fromm entered the game and never ended up relinquishing the job. Related: Jacob Eason is the ultimate Georgia football What If' Even after Eason recovered from the knee injury, Fromm was still clearly the starting quarterback. Georgia won games against Notre Dame and Mississippi State, with Fromm throwing key touchdown passes to Terry Godwin in both games. He showed early on that he could come through and lead the Bulldogs. As for Eason, he'd give tips and pointers whenever he could and Fromm was receptive to Eason's advice. He did acknowledge how tough it was to watch Georgia's spectacular season that ended with a Rose Bowl win, SEC title and national title game appearance from the sideline. But he was nothing but supportive of Fromm and the team. 'I was able to give him some advice,' Eason said. 'He was a tremendous player and a tremendously talented guy so not much was needed. But anywhere I felt I could help him, I stepped in.' Eason never publicly complained about his benching and wait till after the season ended to announce that he would be transferring from Georgia in order to pursue more playing time. These actions by Eason are what endeared him to many in the Georgia fan base. But Eason didn't walk from Georgia right into a starting job at Washington. Nor did he do it in his second game. He sat out the entire 2018 season after transferring unlike Justin Fields another 5-star quarterback who transferred from Georgia after he was unable to beat at Fromm as the starting quarterback. Eason went on to start just one game in the span of two seasons. But that time away from the starting role helped Eason grow as both a player and a person. 'Knowing that you're not going to play that's pretty hard,' Washington teammate Aaron Fuller said. 'But seeing how he grew as both a quarterback and as a leader, it's pretty impressive to see.' As a redshirt junior, Eason improved his completion percentage to 64 percent while also tossing 23 touchdowns. But many of the close games Eason won as a freshman, went the other way with Washington. The Huskies went 0-4 in one-score games with Eason as the starter, compared to the Bulldogs going 5-3 in 2016. Eason once again went 8-5 as a starter, but he had answered some of the questions surrounding him after his long break from college football. He declared for the 2020 NFL Draft, with Mel Kiper Jr. projecting him to be taken by the New England Patriots in the first round of his most recent mock draft. While he might not have grown physically since his time in Athens, it's clear he's a more mature person than when he arrived in Athens as an 18-year old. Jacob Eason discusses Georgia football But with Eason answering many of the questions surrounding him and his college path, more and more have sprouted up for the quarterback who stayed in Athens. Fromm built on a strong freshman season by throwing for 30 touchdowns as a sophomore and leading Georgia to another win SEC East title. The Bulldogs lost to Alabama in the SEC championship game, but it was no fault of Fromm. He threw for 301 yards and three touchdowns. He remarked on Tuesday that it was probably the best game he played in college. Expectations were once again high in 2019, with Georgia bringing back one of the top offensive lines as well as an elite running back in D'Andre Swift. Those expectations were not met. The Bulldogs struggled at the wide receiver position while there were also some growing pains in a new offense. But parts of Fromm's game also regressed. He had five straight games with a completion percentage under 50 percent. He did that only three times in his first two seasons. His touchdowns, completion percentage and yards per attempt all dipped in his junior season. The Bulldogs though will still able to win 12 games and Fromm rebounded with a strong performance in the Sugar Bowl against Baylor. Fromm thought long and hard about what to do next and decided after much thought and prayer that he was ready for the next step. His time in Athens had come to an end as he declared for the 2020 NFL Draft. But the questions didn't stop when Fromm got Indianapolis. On Monday his hands measured in under nine inches. This is as a red flag in the NFL scouting community, but Fromm fired back at anyone suggesting that the size of his hands would prevent him from being a successful quarterback. 'It's an eighth of an inch away from being the desired 9 inches no big deal,' Fromm said. 'It's the same hand that went to three SEC championships, you know, a Rose Bowl, a national championship and some Sugar Bowls. So I think it's played plenty of football and done well enough so far.' Fromm also got a strong endorsement from wide receiver Lawrence Cager. When Cager was on the field for Georgia in 2019, Fromm completed over 70 percent of his passes. But that number dropped under 50 percent as Cager was sidelined with injuries. 'Jake, whatever doubts you have about Jake they're probably not correct,' Cager said. 'His leadership, what he commands from an offense, the way he takes over a team and the day-to-day grind is second to none to me. 'You can't ask for anything better from a quarterback. ' As for Fromm, he's seen as a second-round pick at the moment. But a strong showing in an Indianapolis in both drills and team meetings could bump his draft stock up into the first round. Georgia football quarterback Jake Fromm puts down worries over hand size Related: Lawrence Cager's message at NFL combine: My ceiling is high' Much as they were for a brief time in Athens, Eason and Fromm are competing against each other. It's almost a certainty that the two will be linked for the entirety of their professional careers, given their time as Georgia quarterbacks and that they seem to be polar opposites from a prospect standpoint. Eason and Fromm also both demonstrate that growth isn't always linear. Sometimes your knee buckles and you have to step back and re-evaluate your path. Or a Saturday downpour will prevent you from showing that you're a more than capable signal-caller. Both have their strengths and flaws, but each player demonstrated during their college careers that they're worth a high selection in the 2020 Draft. They each took different paths to get to this point, but through all the ups and downs and challenges presented, the two are still able to catch up like the college pals they are.
