The Georgia Bulldogs are looking to build towards the future as they begin their new journey with head coach Kirby Smart starting Tuesday morning. The Alabama defensive coordinator will have to go forward without one of his players with the brightest future.
According to reports, freshman safety Johnathan Abram has left the program. The announcement comes after Abram did not make the trip to Jacksonville for the Bulldogs’ bowl game amidst “personal issues” with interim head coach Bryan McClendon.
“Johnathan is not at Georgia,” a woman who identified herself as Abram’s mother told Dawg Nation during a phone call Monday morning.
This abrupt departure could stem from former head coach Mark Richt leaving the team in December. After that, Abram walked by a group of reporters and said “If the media wants to know anything, keep Pruitt.”
This, of course, was in reference to Jeremy Pruitt, the Bulldogs’ former defensive coordinator, who replaced Smart at Alabama.
