The Georgia Bulldogs face another embarrassing situation regarding their football team. Reports are that sophomore wide receiver De’Nylon Morrisette was arrested early Tuesday morning on multiple charges.
Morrisette, according to reports, was also charged with driving too fast for conditions, following too closely, and violating Class D restrictions of not driving between midnight and 5 a.m. He was arrested at 3:33 a.m. and booked at 10:10 a.m., according to information from the Oconee County Sherriff’s Department. He was released on bonds totaling $1,721.
Morrisette is the third Georgia Bulldogs football player arrested so far this offseason. Former quarterback Stetson Bennett III was arrested a few months back for being intoxicated and of course, linebacker Jalen Carter was arrested for street car racing that involved the death of a teammate and a staff member.
Despite that, however, both were drafted a few weeks ago but this is still a bad look for a program that is supposed to be head and shoulders ahead of everyone in the college football world right now.
Head coach Kirby Smart has all but ignored what has been happening for a while now although he did release a brief statement on Carter when he was arrested but has been mostly silent on cases like this.
Chalk it up to another blackeye served to this football program and the summer is just beginning.
