Last Friday, the Georgia Bulldogs announced that wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman was dismissed from the team. It was a huge decision from the coaching staff considering their need for offensive playmakers.
Georgia dismissed Holloman due to serious assault allegations against him. The six-foot-two wideout would have been a top option for quarterback Jake Fromm this upcoming season.
Head coach Kirby Smart must be disappointed with Holloman, especially when you consider his statement from last week.
“Jeremiah Holloman no longer represents the University of Georgia football program,” Coach Kirby Smart said in a statement to The Covington News.
With his career officially over at Georgia, Holloman has to look for another opportunity elsewhere.
According to 247Sports, Holloman has officially entered the NCAA transfer portal. He’ll now have the chance to be recruited by other programs.

Holloman came on strong during his sophomore season with the Bulldogs, hauling in 24 receptions for 418 yards and five touchdowns.
The former four-star recruit would have plenty of suitors based only off his potential. However, the assault allegations surrounding him should play a major factor in his future.
While the Bulldogs have plenty of talent entering the 2019 season, the lack of proven talent at wide receiver could be their biggest flaw. Mecole Hardman Jr. and Riley Ridley entered the NFL Draft, which leaves a gaping hole on offense.
As for Holloman, it’ll be interesting to see which, if any, programs are willing to give him a second chance. Given the allegations, that is a serious question.
