As we all continue to process what the departure of tailback Isaiah Crowell will mean to Georgia’s football team this season, he has to rank up there among the most talented players to be booted from an SEC team.
I realize that Cam Newton’s name will immediately come up, but Newton has said that it was his choice to leave Florida after getting into trouble there with the stolen laptop.
As for other players who were dismissed from SEC teams or kicked out of school, some of the more talented ones that come to mind include, in no order:
Florida cornerback Janoris Jenkins
Tennessee safety Janzen Jackson
Tennessee running back Onterrio Smith
LSU running back Cecil Collins
Georgia quarterback Zach Mettenberger
Georgia running back Jasper Sanks
South Carolina running back Demetris Summers
South Carolina running back Derek Watson
Tennessee running back Reggie Cobb
LSU quarterback Ryan Perrilloux
South Carolina quarterback Stephen Garcia
Alabama defensive tackle Michael Myers
Ole Miss receiver Pat Patterson
Who else did I miss? I’m sure there are a ton of other names out there.
Let’s hear them.
