Report: Dismissed Georgia DT Charged With Aggravated Assault Being Recruited By Auburn, LSU, Louisville

In July, Jonathan Taylor was dismissed from the Georgia football program after being arrested on a felony charge of aggravated assault. The former Bulldogs' defensive tackle was reportedly the aggressor in a domestic violence situation at McWhorter Hall on Georgia’s campus, according to the university’s police chief, Jimmy Williamson. 

Taylor, playing this season at Copiah-Lincoln Community College in Wesson, Miss., is apparently trying to work his way back into the SEC. 

According to 247Sports, the former four-star recruit is being recruited by Auburn, LSU, and Louisville.

Taylor, who totaled nine tackles for Georgia in 2013, is reportedly going to visit Auburn this weekend. He was at LSU this past weekend for the Tigers' loss to Mississippi State. 

The 6-foot-5, 320-pounder was a top 100 prospect out of Jenkins County in Millen, Ga. in 2012. He held offers from Alabama, Auburn, Florida State, Louisville, LSU, Michigan and South Carolina, among others.
