Georgia dismisses WR Jeremiah Holloman over alleged assault
The Georgia Bulldogs confirmed Friday that wide receiver Jeremiah Holloman has been dismissed from the team after an alleged assault.
Holloman was accused of punching a woman in the face in April of 2018, and admitted to hitting her in an investigation into the claims. While the victim did not press charges, medical records were consistent with her account, and the claims were forwarded to the UGA Student Conduct office for further investigation.
Coach Kirby Smart confirmed in a statement to Jackie Gutknecht of The Covington News that Holloman had been dismissed from the team as a result of that investigation.
“Jeremiah Holloman no longer represents the University of Georgia football program,” Smart said. “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.”
On the field, Holloman’s dismissal will leave a significant hole in the Bulldog receiving corps. He caught 24 passes for 418 yards and five touchdowns last season, good for fourth on the team and first among all returnees on the 2019 roster.
