Georgia kicker Marshall Morgan will not play Saturday at Clemson, the result of a suspension related to a June boating under the influence arrest, sources close to the team told ESPN.

According to a Georgia Department of Natural Resources incident report, DNR rangers at Lake Sinclair observed Morgan, 19, operating a personal watercraft and towing two riders on an inner tube without a spotter, which is a violation of state boating law.

Upon stopping the watercraft, arresting ranger Lynn Stanford reported that Morgan admitted to drinking, so the ranger administered a field sobriety test. Stanford added that Morgan registered a .083 blood alcohol reading on an Alco-Sensor test and refused a chemical test. The legal limit for boating under the influence in Georgia is a .02 blood alcohol concentration for operators under age 21.

Georgia's student-athlete handbook calls for a competition suspension of at least 20 percent of the season (two games) for a first DUI arrest.

Morgan is Georgia's only scholarship place-kicker. He set new program records for most PATs made and attempted (63-for-67). He also went 8-for-14 on field goals and handled 33 of Georgia's 85 kickoffs.

Information from DawgNation's David Ching was used in this report.
