Two days after National Signing Day, Georgia coach Mark Richt has dismissed three players for violations of team rules. DB Nick Marshall, WR Sanford Seay and DB Chris Sanders have been dismissed from the team.
All were freshmen. Two of the players—Marshall and Seay—have been accused of attempting to steal money from the dorm room of a teammate. There is no indication that Sanders was involved in the incident.
Georgia had a relatively quiet offseason in 2011 after pulling in a consensus Top 5 recruiting class, with few off-the-field distractions.
2012 isn’t shaping up that way.
In fact, going into National Signing Day, Georgia was locked in a three-way tie for first place in the annual Fulmer Cup race. With today’s developments, expect the standings to show Georgia and Mark Richt in sole possession of first place and the early favorite to take home the plastic.
