A woman has accused Georgia Bulldogs wide receiver Isaiah McKenzie of threatening her life and her case is currently being investigated by Athens-Clarke County police. The Athens Banner-Herald reported the development.
The police report only names McKenzie’s accuser as a UGA student, but the allegation is serious. The young lady told police that McKenzie said he was “going to call some friends and they were going to come out and he was going to kill her.”
The Bulldogs’ football staff acknowledged being aware of the report, but would not elaborate further.
Needless to say, if these allegations are true, McKenzie could find himself in some hot water. Violence and threats against women are not taken lightly by the sports world, both on the collegiate and professional levels, and McKenzie could be looking at a suspension from the team at a minimum. For how many games that suspension lasts is anyone’s guess.
If McKenzie is suspended, Georgia’s offense would suffer a tremendous blow. He has appeared in three games and caught five passes for 89 yards this season, but is also an absolute stud on special teams.
In two years, McKenzie has returned 27 punts for 346 yards and is considered to be one of the top special teams players in the country.
No information has been released beyond what is in the police report, but Campus Sports will update McKenzie’s story once any new information becomes available.
Georgia takes on SEC rival Alabama at home on Saturday, with kickoff slated for 3:30 p.m. ET on CBS.
