UGA denied admission to defensive back Michael Grant, the No. 1 recruit in Georgia's 2004 class, who will enroll instead at Arkansas. The denial was the result of a background check done by a UGA admissions committee according to Grant's football coach at Stephenson High School in Stone Mountain. Grant was expelled from South Gwinnett High School in the 10th grade for an incident involving a female student. Grant attended alternative schools in Gwinnett and DeKalb counties before transferring to Stephenson his junior year. Grant was expected to compete for playing time at defensive back and possibly also play wide receiver for the Bulldogs. Grant will be immediately eligible at Arkansas because he met all other NCAA entrance requirements.
