UGA reported 5 NCAA Level III violations in the last 3 months of 2022

A Georgia football player who jumped the gun on name, image and likeness activity was suspended for a game during its just completed national championship season after the school reported the NCAA violation.

The player signed memorabilia for money prior to July 1, 2021 when the NCAA changed its policies to allow college athletes to take advantage of their notoriety.

Georgia listed the date the violation was reported as Sept. 29, 2022 and the player was held out of a game after the school learned about it, said UGA deputy athletic director Will Lawler who oversees compliance.

Georgia did not name the player involved nor the game he missed but said he repaid the impermissible benefit.

The school listed five violations total in the second quarter of this academic year from October 1-Dec. 31 and six total since July 1, according to information the school disclosed in its list of NCAA self-reported violations.
