UGA’s McGarity Contacts SEC, NCAA Over Improper Benefits Story

Georgia athletic director Greg McGarity announced yesterday that his school has contacted both the SEC and the NCAA with regards to improper benefits two UGA athletes might have received during their high school years.

The Columbus Ledger-Enquirer reported on Sunday that a police investigation into Columbus’ Parks and Recreating Department had found that football player Jarvis Jones and basketball player Kentavious Caldwell-Pope had received benefits while starring for a Columbus AAU team.

“The UGAAA and the student-athletes will work cooperatively with both entities (SEC and NCAA) as the process continues,” read McGarity’s release.Ā  He also said that the school would make no additional comments “until the matter is resolved.”

The amateur status of both Jones and Caldwell-Pope are now in question due to the investigation’s findings.
